The challenge

Client with inoperable broken hip often needed to have legs raised.  The wheelchair utilised special leg raisers which were vulnerable to breakage as were the occupant’s legs when manoevring.  Solution was to clamp a mount onto the wheelchair with a sliding U-tube adjustable for the various positions.  This provided a robust, hi-viz ‘bumper bar’ as the first point of contact.
