|Sam Sullivan in a TrailRider in the snow!|
There is a sled device attached to the wheel
Ros is teaching me that the key to all this online stuff is the connections that get built - hang on, I thought I was the computer nerd?
Sam Sullivan (see Wikipedia) invented the TrailRider and what prompts this post is that he said hello through a comment. Google, mysteriously, led him to a post here - I suspect that he might have been Googling himself ;-) because it was part of a conversation where I accidentally typed his name instead of someone else at Disability Foundation in Vancouver.
In 1978 Sam had a skiing accident which left him quadriplegic. He worked tirelessly towards better lives for the disabled founding several organisations with a variety of disability focuses, served as Mayor of Vancouver and invented the TrailRider.
Wikipedia suggests that there are 100 of these in the world - so 10% are in Australia!
