Please can anyone help Phillip

I’m from Manchester Metropolitan University where I’m looking in to a project combining wheelchair use and virtual reality (VR). I’m investigating if we can integrate a VR game with a wheelchair ergometer to help new wheelchair users experience using a wheelchair in a safe environment before using in the real world.

At the university we have the expertise to make the VR game, but not the wheelchair ergometer. Would you be able, or know anyone, that would be able to help with the design and manufacture of a wheelchair ergometer?

Thank you for your time. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Kind regards,
