Tony is a power wheelchair user who has a passion for playing pool (billiards). As a wheelchair user, the need to approach a pool table side-on results in reduced accuracy and power with the pool cue. Tony would like to develop some of his ideas for a pool cue stabiliser to improve his performance while playing.
Tony and his team worked together to develop a pool cue stand and stabiliser which attaches to the arm rest of his wheelchair. Both its height and distance from the table can be adjusted for accuracy. The pool cue stabiliser is also spring-loaded to increase Tony’s power. The device is a simple mechanical solution made from off-the-shelf components.
