The challenge

Guard in useIMG_1549
The parts used
The client is particularly vulnerable to fractures to his ankles and so used to place his feet behind his wheelchair footrests to protect them from collision, which caused discomfort and pressure behind his knees.

The stainless steel tubular guard provides the necessary protection to give him the confidence to keep his feet on the footplates.  Quick-release clamps (used on boats for attaching canopies) allow the guard to be removed without tools when needed.

These bull bars were subsequently modified to fit the client’s new wheelchair.
