Given that ice skating requires some extra skills and perfect body balance, apart from professional training, it remains a distant dream for the physically challenged. However, designer Peter Jervis, thinking out of the box, has come up with an innovative ice skate that makes ice skating a reality even for the physically challenged, suffering from paraplegia – a lower spinal cord injury. Called “Sit Skate,” the special ice skate moves with the upper body strength of the user, quite similar to forward and downward pushing motion of a manual wheelchair. Users may steer the skate by either individual arm movement or by leaning the chair, transferring the motion to the lower oar like arms that turn and propel the chair. The Sit Skate also includes backrest, footrest and bendable sides, which can be adjusted to transfer and accommodate different users with minimum effort. And the memory foam cushioned seat prevent pressure sores and allows optimum comfort to the users.
