Mandy is a registered blind mother who needed to be able to pull a child’s pushchair whilst using her guide dog. The twisting action involved in pulling the chair was giving her serious back problems.

A handle which is retractable, and can be locked in both positions, was made from aluminium and fitted to the handle of the pushchair with specially designed brackets and fittings. In use, the deployed handle curves round in front of Mandy and allows her to control the pushchair without twisting. With the handle retracted she is able to use public transport.

Mandy can now go out safely and in comfort.
