The challenge

Head pointer for bocciaThe client is an England international boccia player and required a head pointer to enable her to release the ball in certain situations.

The inside of a safety helmet was used as a base. A coach bolt was secured through two aluminium strengthening plates, at the front of the helmet, to which an alumiunim tube was fastened. A brass rod fitted with a v-shaped block of wood was secured in the tube with a split pin. The front area of the head band was padded and wrapped with squash racket handle tape for comfort.

The client is very satisfied with the solution.
