Composites can offer significant benefits for performance-driven products and, for the UK’s winter Paralympic team, performance is key. The natural evolution of Sit Ski technology is an increased use of engineered materials and state-of-the-art design and manufacturing techniques.
Four of the UK High Value Manufacturing Catapult (HVMC) centres; the National Composites Centre (NCC), Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC), Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) and the University of Warwick (WMG) embarked on a project to develop a new and innovative Sit Ski. The end product was a unique demonstration of the UK’s expertise in high value design and manufacturing technologies.
