Bowling Industry INVENTION 
- Inventor of the Crossover Chair... world's only wheelchair designed for bowling and more!

The Crossover Chair is first wheelchair designed for bowling.. The technology allows the seat the ability to shift either right or left and tilt right or left with with the push a button.. The Crossover Chair provides an unprecedented amount of clearance and leverage by allowing the armswing to swing on a vertical plane, just like able-bodied bowlers.. And when finished bowling, or any other activity, the user simply presses the the "Home" button to return the seat to a neutral everyday-use position.

For everyday use, the Crossover Chair invention offers users an unprecedented increased range of motion, including the ability of picking up an object directly from the floor while remaining fully seated!. Additionally, Crossover Chair technology also allows the seat to offset directly against the bed so the user can easily slide from the bed to the wheelchair and from the wheelchair to the bed without having to deal the space created by normal wheelchairs, scooters and powerchairs.

.......... ~ Two (2) U.S. Patents:: #8,685,600 -/- #8,684,398  
.......... ~ Currently in the FDA approval process    

............. + Adjustable wheelchair seat provides variable amount of lateral shift -- right and left
............. + Variable amount of left and right tilt capability
............. + Lateral shift and tilt functions are independent of each other
............. + Each lateral shift and tilt functions can have their own command switch and can be
................ engaged in
dependently or simultaneously

.......... ~ Demonstration provided to the American Wheelchair Bowling Association (AWBA) in Tampa, FL - June '15
.......... ~ The Crossover Chair wheelchair was debuted in Bowl Expo in 2014 in Orlando. (Click here to see Bowl Expo flyer)
