Baby buggy & pushchair on wheelchair

Baby buggy & pushchair on wheelchairThe client wished to fit a baby buggy or alternatively a pushchair to her wheelchair. She wanted to be able to connect and disconnect it herself.

The buggy-linking frame connects to the wheelchair by spigoting into the wheelchair foot rest fixings. New foot rests are incorporated into the buggy-to-wheelchair linking platform. The linking frame is lifted and dropped into the wheelchair foot rest fixings using side mounted screw jacks operated using a cordless screwdriver.

Latches secure the buggy/pushchair frame spigots preventing detachment. Linkage enabled hand operation for the buggy/pushchair brake (normally foot operated). When connected the rear wheels of the buggy/pushchair are lifted off the ground.

The client can now connect either a buggy or pushchair to her wheelchair independently with relative ease and the unit is highly manoeuvrable, stable and safe when connected.
