The challenge

Umbrella mounting on electric wheelchairThe client wanted to be able to mount an umbrella on his electric wheelchair.

An arm to hold the umbrella mounting socket was provided, pivoting on a pin beneath the front of the wheelchair armrest. This means the position of the umbrella is variable and the arm holding it can be folded under the wheelchair armrest when not required.

This gives the client a good degree of shelter from rain and sun when required.
