A device to allow a person with disabilities to putt a golf ball


Requested Project

A device to allow a person with disabilities to putt a golf ball.  

Design Notes

This device allows an athlete in a wheelchair to putt or chip through simple wrist flexion.  The putter/chipper should be placed next to the armrest of the wheel chair so the athlete arm can rest on it. By varying the number of rubber bands used, the ball may be either putted or chipped.

RCRV designer is Lester Haerther, and was requested by GWAEA. The project was begun Oct 15, 2001 and completed Oct 15, 2001.
