In April 1981 Dan Everard started the design of a revolutionary power-chair for his seventeen month old disabled daughter so that she would learn things in step with her peers.

People started to ask for chairs like the original 'Yellow Peril' for children that they knew, so the idea was production engineered to create the 'Turbo' from which the 'Dragon' for adults and 'SnapDragon' for children were eventually developed.

Thirty four years later Dan Everard's team have delivered the 2,000th machine of this type and, to celebrate this, 2,000 sponsored balloons will be released at a party at the end of the campaign.
