Corporate Partners : Spinal Cord Injuries Association


Lachlan Foote was born with a disability called Arthrogryposis which has limited the length and mobility of his arms. He recently passed his driving test and is now enjoying the freedom of driving his own Toyota Camry modified by PME Auto Conversions to have Foot Steering, Electric Park-brake and custom Accessories controls.

Lachlan hopes to compete as a Paralympian at the 2020 Tokyo Games and uses the vehicle to drive himself to training. He competes as a T45 Amputee and is the Australian record holder in the 100m, 200m and 400m sprint and long jump for several age categories. You can view the current record holders at the Athletics Australia website, here.

Lachlan's vehicle modifications were supported by the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). If you'd like to learn how the NDIS could fund the modification of your vehicle, the NDIS section on our website is a good place to start.

Rob Dempsey was involved in a motor vehicle accident after hitting a Kangaroo and loosing control of his Hilux on a country road in rural New South Wales. He was left a C3-C4 Quadriplegic, this hasn't stopped him from living an active life on the farm and getting out with his mates in the Aussie bush.

Space Drive technology by PARAVAN® has allowed him to drive his modified VW Transporter and get around on the farm with his Polaris RZR. PME Auto Conversions are very proud to have helped Rob get back to living a productive and purposeful life on the farm
