The challenge

Tracy needs a cupholder that clips onto the front of her wheelchair armrest, not on the side where it gets broken. The wheelchair manufacturer does not offer this option.

The solution

A simple bracket was made that slips into the front of the armrest using the same fixing as her table. It is even strong enough to hold a full bottle of wine.

  

The benefit

Tracy can now whizz around without spilling a drop. As she says: “[my wheelchair] Bob has an awesome cup holder now that has been custom made for him by a wonderful volunteer at a charity called Remap. The cup holder is epic – it attaches facing forwards from the front of the arm. It’s made of steel so it’s damn near indestructible and looks fantastic.”
