April 17 - Wheelchair users at Stoke Mandeville Stadium have been given a boost following the donation of 50 non-slip trays by Buckinghamshire based company Isagi.
WheelPower chairman Kevan Baker was first on-hand to test these new trays and thanked Isagi for the gift.
"Personally I think the Isagi tray is a wonderful idea for wheelchair users," he said.
"It resolves the problem of the tray slipping off the user's knee.
"As it has non-slip elements both on its underside and the top, it means that drinks do not slip around the tray either.
"Such a simple idea and yet so useful."
Isagi, which manufactures and distributes a unique patented anti-slip material range, made the donation as WheelPower welcomed more than 80 patients from the 13 spinal units across the UK and Ireland for the Inter Spinal Unit Games
"We successfully manufacture a lot of products for disabled people around the UK and northern Europe, so we were very keen to help such a worthy organisation which is on our doorstep in Bucks," said Andrew Guilbert, managing director of Isagi.
"These trays are made from a special material which grips the plates, cups and saucers ensuring they don't slip around and fall while they are being carried to the table."
