John Fuller from Shropshire Remap asks for help with the following please:

We have a request to supply an adaptation to enable a client to have a quick connect/disconnect between an Invacare “FOX” powered chair and a Britax “B-Agile” baby buggy.

The buggy has a triangular undercarriage so the attachment requires the rear wheels of the buggy to be lifted off the ground when in use.

The client has limited use of left hand and the wheelchair power controls are on the right.

Additionally when the buggy is detached it is required as a conventional buggy for the Father’s use.

I have looked at the excellent adaptation by South Bucks back in 2012 but cannot see how it would adapt to this particular chair/buggy combination.

Any ideas/suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Regards

John Fuller

  1. Hello John.

    REMAP Gwent have also made a adaptation for a father that wished to attach his baby’s pushchair to his wheelchair, then be able to get over kerbs etc with ease.
    If you wish to the see pictures I can email them to you.

    Best wishes, Roger Vaughan
