The special school has two types of body roller to provide deep pressure therapy as the children crawl between the rollers; both have no means of moving them safely.

On the first type of body roller, wheels were added to one end, with brakes scavenged from a condemned wheelchair, and a dolly made to lift the other end to allow the whole to be moved.

On the second type, wheels were added to one end in such a way that they were off the ground in normal use and supported the roller off the ground when being moved (similar to the domestic wheelie bin).
