The Kicker Helper

I love low-tech solutions to common problems.  I came across this tool online, and it looks like a great solution to inclusion of individuals with wheelchairs in various team sports and recreation activities.

The kicker helper attaches to a wheelchair, and allows the user to manipulate a paddle-lever to produce a kicking motion.  

These retail online for about $225, but could likely be purchase by a school using Special Education Amount (SEA) funds, with a written prescription from an Occupational Therapist.
