Tennis Wheelchair is a custom adaptation to a wheelchair customized for Noam to play tennis with better balance. Tikkun Olam Makers' Team Noam successfully built a solution to customize Noam’s wheelchair to better balance it for tennis play. It was accomplished by designing a removable counterweight that attaches to the chair when needed. The design mimics the weight distribution of a leg and attaches to the chair adjacent to Noam’s left leg. The solution was built by a 3D scan of Noam’s sitting position followed by 3D printing several iterations of the design enabling adaptations, using Stratasys FDM thermoplastic, and covering it all with breathing fabric and memory foam.
