WFTS: Making Better Swings For More Accessible Playgrounds
A Tampa couple invented a more comfortable swing for playgrounds, to help make playgrounds more accessible to kids with disabilities.

A child in a wheelchair may not be able to enjoy a playground as it's currently designed.

So one Tampa couple built an alternative to the playground swing using materials in their own home. 

Two and a half years later, they’ve sold thousands of RelaxSlings nationwide. 

It's made from parachute material that contours to your body, keeping the rider safe, secure and snug. It's also sturdy enough for adults up to 200 pounds.
