The Boccia Ball Ramp 2

Originator......Tom Jeary


THE PROBLEM:  This young lady's movement are restricted to head movement. 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 allows the assistant to raise the lower end of the ram to various hights as directet by the player. The more it's raised, the shorter the run. At to top, a spring loaded "hook" is triggered by a nod of the head to set the ball in motion.
