Where we began
Dreamfit began when founder Darren Lomman met Shane in a hospital car park. Darren was a third year engineering student at the University of Western Australia at the time and was trying to find an interesting project to take on for his course. Darren started talking to Shane, who had been paralysed after a motorcycle accident, about what he would love to be able to do. Shane told Darren his one dream would be to ride a motorcycle again.
As a young, enthusiastic student and passionate motorcyclist himself, Darren decided to take on the challenge of modifying his motorcycle so a person with paraplegia could ride it. This was done through a number of modifications, including hand controls and an automatic stabilising system for when the motorcycle came to a stop.
As more and more people started approaching Darren with their dreams and challenges and asking for his assistance, Dreamfit was born.
Over the following years, Dreamfit grew from it's humble beginnings in Darren's backyard shed to a current 1500m² workshop, which is leased to us by the University of Western Australia for a peppercorn lease of $1 per year.
Dreamfit became part of Ability Centre in February 2015, allowing for more streamlined and efficient service and product delivery, while ensuring people with disability continue to be provided with innovative mobility, recreational and community access solutions.
From Janaury 2017, the Dreamfit customer service centre, including clinical assessment and equipment trials relocatedto Ability Centre's CP Tech labs within the Sir David Brand Cntre at 106 Bradford Street, Coolbinia.
