---- CUSTOMIZED ADAPTATION --------- PURPOSE: To provide a customized adaptation for an individual with mobility disabilities who must remain in his wheelchair (i.e. cannot be removed and placed another apparatus) to be taken along on a cross country ski trip. The Skiing Wheelchair uses skis that are parabolic and essential in allowing the chair to turn easily when pressure is applied down through the handgrips. The triangular frame is made of ¼ inch by 1.5 inch mild steel to support the user and welded to a hub with a ½ inch hole through it so that the wheel can simply be popped off and replaced with the ski while user remains in the seat. The small front wheel fits into a bracket and is held down with a bungee. TITLE: The Skiing Wheelchair. WEBSITE: Workshop Solutions. REF: http://www.workshopsolutions.com/COMPLETE/skichair.htm.
