The client is a very keen canoe instructor who is paraplegic. Her mother provides transport and assistance. Being quite petite, she had problems loading the heavy canoe onto the roof rack of her car.
A two-piece folding and telescopic support was made. This is fitted with rubber-covered rollers which easily allow the mother to support, then slide the canoe onto the roof of her car. The support can then be dismantled and, if required, stored in the boot of the car.
