A young man with severe physical disabilities and a muscle wasting disease affecting his legs and balance, required a frame to support him in a standing position when clay pigeon shooting, in which he competes internationally. The frame had to be strong, lightweight, easily collapsible and provide a secure non-slip surface in mud and wet grass.
A frame was constructed from stainless steel and aluminum tubing with heavyweight expanded aluminium mesh on an aluminium angle frame for the base. The hinges and support brackets were machined from nylon blocks. The complete frame weighs less than 6kg.
The frame met all requirements and the client now feels more secure and confident when shooting under adverse conditions. Being collapsible, the frame is easily carried by car or air.
