Ability Centre announces the acquisition of Dreamfit

The Ability Centre, formerly The Centre for Cerebral Palsy, provides customised technology solutions to customers. Sharing a similar vision and strategic direction, Dreamfit supports people with disability to participate in their communities, and overcome barriers in their everyday life. Dreamfit is a not for profit organisation providing innovative mobility and other equipment solutions for people with disability.

The acquisition will also provide Dreamfit’s customers with an even greater range of support, including access to therapy and health, accommodation, employment and recreation.

Dreamfit began when founder Darren Lomman, a third year engineering student at the University of Western Australia, developed specialised motorcycle hand controls and an automatic stabilising system for when a motorcycle came to a stop. This enabled Shane who was paralysed after a motorcycle accident to achieve his one dream to again ride a motorcycle. Dreamfit had begun.

Watermark has been proud to provide pro bono IP legal services to Dreamfit over a number of years, and looks forward to continuing our close association with Darren Lomman and the Dreamfit team as they deliver more and more mobility and ability solutions through Ability Centre.
