Originator.....Tom Jeary

E-mail......tlj@golden.net


THE PROBLEM:  This young lady's movement are restricted to partial use of the right hand only. The device allows her to compete in a regular Boccia Ball competition.

THE SOLUTION:   It consists of a ramp that, at the top, rests on the arms of her wheelchair and runs down to the floor. To adjust the length of the run a variable set of legs allowl the assistant to raise the lower end of the ram to various sights as directet by the player. The more it's raised, the shorter the run. At to top, an adjustable support can be placed in various positions to keep the ball right at the edge so a very minimum of effort is required to set it in motion.
