Bow stand for one handed archery project

  • Complete

The essential feature of the stand is that it should be secure enough to withstand the bowstring pull without too much deflection. This was achieved with long side support braces down to a large plywood base board which the user stands on or parks their wheelchair on.   The limiting factor for the base  is transport size.

Also as always and particularly with a potentially dangerous activity like archery risk assessment is important.

The solution

The benefit

For some reason archery is a very popular activity and lots of people get pleasure and a chance to meet up at these sessions.

    Hi, please can you let me know how to get hold of one of these, or get one made. I teach PE in a school for children with SEND and this would be perfect for several of our pupils who have CP or upper limb issues.

    Your local Remap group should be up to that challenge Kieran. Remap Cambridge did one that didn’t require the bow to be held, see our main site

    Hi I’m looking for a bow stand for people in wheel chairs. I have a few people I teach who can’t grip the bow. Any ideas?

    Hi! I am working with a Paralympic sports club and would love to make one of these bow stands for a little girl with SMA! Is there somebody I can get in contact with to get closer pictures/explanations of how I might be able to build this? Thanks!

    I have a grandson with a left arm that is to weak to use a bow.
    I think this stand would work for him.
    Please send information on where to purchase or build a unit.
