#1883: SpinDriver

Wheelchair users compete in a number of sports. Despite what I think about golf and what the rules probably say, today’s invention is intended to allow those in wheelchairs to get involved on a more-or-less equal basis.

The chair would be able to tip slightly to one side, into two different, stable positions (levered onto a strut, shown in red).

The first of these (1) would allow the raised wheel to spin a club head up to speed manually. Dropping the wheel into the second position (2), at the right moment, would allow the ball to be struck.

With practice, this system could be used for putting too.
