Innovative Sit Ski Uses Composite Materials to Deliver Peak Performance to UK Winter Paralympic Team

Free Webinar Hosted by Composites World


Delivering Peak Performance with Composites for UK Winter Paralympic Team

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.


Topics covered in the webinar:

  • Background to the study
  • Collaborative engineering design
  • Advanced simulation techniques
