Bowler® is a 2004 da Vinci Award winning invention that is changing the way
wheelchair users spend their time. Now even
high-level quadriplegics are able to bowl and join
a league or tournament to compete with fellow IKAN users and/or
able-bodied bowlers! Because the IKAN Bowler®
attaches to the wheelchair, it gives the user TOTAL
INDEPENDENCE over their game.
This is unlike any ramp
you've ever tried. With the IKAN Bowler®,
the wheelchair user is in charge. The IKAN Bowler®
is EASY TO ATTACH to virtually any straight
or sports-style legrests, INCLUDING CENTER
POST STYLE WHEELCHAIRS. This revolutionary system allows
the bowler to control the speed, direction, and timing of
the bowling ball's release. Wheelchair movement and the
unique parabolic bowling arm generate the energy to propel
the ball down the lane. Braking the wheelchair sends the
ball in the direction the bowler wants.
With the IKAN BOWLER® all POWER WHEELCHAIR USERS can go WHEELCHAIR BOWLING,
including people with Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy, Spina Bifida, Quadriplegia, Spinal Cord Injuries, Multiple Sclerosis and other power wheelchair users...
