Equipped to push your limits
For the past 30 years, Tanni and Ian have been involved in wheelchair racing as competitors, coaches and enthusiasts.
They want to make the experience in wheelchair sport as positive as possible for top class performers and keen participants, through technical coaching, positioning in the chair and equipment development.
The business is part of their ‘delivering one rounded athlete’ approach and the team will be supplying first class products and services to individuals of all ages and abilities.
Aim High comes from a unique saying of Tanni's Grandfather. He always used to tell her that she should 'Aim high even if you hit a cabbage'. Although not a well known saying, he was keen to find a way to tell her that she should always have a goal and a dream, and that the only realistic chance of achieving it would be to work hard.
Racing Chairs & Handbikes
A racing wheelchair is a highly technical piece of sports equipment and whether you are a recreational athlete or have aspirations to compete at the highest level, then getting the perfect fit is essential.
With thirty years experience of racing, chair design, construction and fitting and coaching Tanni and Ian have joined forces with Invacare to offer their Top End range of racing wheelchairs and handcycles.
This combines the superb engineering of the Top End brand and Aim High’s attention for detail in assessing the individual’s needs and how to deliver performance in chair positioning and technique to give the very best product and experience to the customer. It is not just about taking measurements for the chair, the aim is to develop your experience towards the delivery of the new chair – in positioning, technique and training - a unique package!

Designed with the needs of the user at heart, the Aim High Roller System is the lightest wheelchair roller system in the world, featuring variable resistance to deliver a range of speed and load options and a modular portable assembly for ease of movement, storage and carriage by the user.
Rollers are a key weapon in the armoury of the wheelchair racer by providing facility to push:
- when the weather outside is too wet, too cold, or too hot
- when outdoor training facilities are not available
- for efficient warm up at competition venues
- for a consistent condition for coaching and testing technique and fitness
We have been producing innovative wheelchair roller systems for more than 25 years and were the originators of the roller based warm up which has become a familiar sight at competition venues around the world.
Our newest offering comes in at less than 5kg and will fit into a carrier bag! So much easier for packing in with your luggage for flying, easily assembled ready for use. The resistance can be varied by the user from the chair, making it possible to simulate a range of conditions through the training session, and particularly to work on technique at high speed.
And book in for a session on ‘how to best use your rollers’ with one of the team/Ian/Tanni and our technical masterclasses to optimise your chair position, set up and technique.
Performance, ease and delivery.
