Alison has worked closely with Remap over the last few years, designing and developing seated throwing frames for many GB athletes. She is now a consultant to Remap working on developing a generic throwing frame for club use, thereby creating greater participation opportunities for seated throwers.

 

This throwing frame, the Protean STF has been supported by England Athletics.

It has recently been launced nationally and is available for purchase.
