A MESSAGE FROM THE INVENTOR

I have been supporting Richard Chiassaro a wheelchair athlete by fund raising etc., in my own small way since late 2011. About three years ago Richard informed me of the need for a better type of training roller for wheelchair athletes. I started to think about how to solve this problem.  I set out to produce a training roller of sufficiently light construction (11.5kg) in an “A” frame configuration that is rock solid on almost any surface.  Because it’s light, the athlete can pick it up and place it in a convenient spot of their choosing to train without assistance.  It can be included in their luggage when travelling by air, and would be well within the normal baggage allowance.

 

The other major consideration was athlete safety.  This too has been accommodated within the design so that the athlete cannot come off the roller whilst training.  The roller plate, which includes a magnetic unit to give more resistance to the user, has a remote control which can be used by athlete or coach.  This base unit can be removed by unscrewing 4 screws.  The remaining “A” frame could be used in protecting the racing chair’s main shaft when in transit.  This requires the “A” frame to be secured to the base of the box in which the chairs are freighted.  This would help avoid damage in an aircraft hold or other possible trouble spots.

 

After several prototypes, the production model has now been produced in the UK making this a totally British invention.  It has had modifications to make it completely flat pack.  This makes it easy to store in its box even in a small home environment. It takes only 5 minutes to assemble and even less to disassemble and all can be done by the user without the need for an able bodied assistant giving total independence.
