Bull’s-eye!

Posted 9 February 2017 in Case studies

Archery stool

Hannah is a keen archer but has problems with balance and fatigue – she cannot stand for very long, and suffers vertigo when shooting. She therefore needed a stable archery stool and it had to be both strong and lightweight. Hannah does not drive so┬áit was important that the stool could be dismantled and packed into a rucksack.

Michael Goom, a volunteer with Remap Bristol, based his solution on a single legged perching stool and added three more legs for stability. He made a special collar to attach the additional legs to the stool using a 3D printer.

The choice of materials and manufacture has produced a very lightweight stool that Hannah was then able to use in competitive archery.

    I have been looking for a seat just like this. I noticed David Philips a GB disabled team member used what looked like a custom seat.

    Is this seat available to purchase as I am a archer too who suffers from weak legs having broken my back?
