The Japanese premium company, along with employees of the Cerebral Palsy Fund (CPF), has released a special version of its full-size SUV Lexus LX. The car is intended for children with cerebral palsy.

Japanese luxury car maker unveiled a unique version of the full-size Lexus LX SUV. This toy convertible was created primarily to raise the spirit of children who suffer from cerebral palsy. Cerebral Palsy Foundation (CPF) employees also took part in the creation of automobiles.

 “People with cerebral palsy rarely get the support they urgently need,” said Rachel Byrne, executive director of the CPF Foundation. “Our mission is to change this paradigm and become a catalyst for creating positive change through collaboration and partnership with the Japanese company Lexus.”

Since children with cerebral palsy have difficulty playing with other children, Lexus wants to give them the opportunity to feel more confident behind the wheel of a smaller copy of the LX SUV.

  “By creating such a car, we wanted to go beyond the ordinary framework and explore how our car can improve the mood for a child with cerebral palsy, who cannot enjoy the joy of mobility like other children,” said Cooper Eriksen, vice president of Lexus .

 The first owner of the toy Lexus LX is Finley Smallwood. Finley suffers from cerebral palsy and has difficulty sitting for an extended period of time. Because of this, the vehicle is equipped with additional side pads for lateral support and an adjustable headrest. The doors were enlarged, plus ground clearance was reduced, a seat belt with five attachment points was installed to securely lock the child. In addition, to facilitate control of the machine, a special joystick is installed in the armrest, which not only controls the direction of movement of the car, but also controls acceleration.
