Archery system

Posted 13 July 2015 in Awards

Members of a sports club for disabled young people wanted to try archery, but with limited upper body strength and coordination this seemed a distant dream.

Remap volunteer Derek Matthews took on the challenge and mounted archery bows on stands to enable seated players to take aim.  Releasing the trigger is achieved by hitting a foot switch (don’t worry, there are some clever safety features!)

Club members now enjoy their archery sessions as full participants, not onlookers.

    Would it be possible to get the plans/designs for this to have a look at? I’m wondering if something similar would help me with my archery as my hands fail.

    I am looking to an Archery System, to assist a variety of people with disabilities. Please let me know if you can put me in contact with someone I could get a copy of the plans from.
