The Dreamfit foundation was the brainchild of Darren Lomman, who back in 2003, was a mechanical engineering student at The University of Western Australia. He was looking for a third-year engineering project when he met Shane, who had become a T6 paraplegic after a terrible motorcycle accident. Shane’s dream was to be able to ride a motorcycle once again so Darren spent the next three years developing a hand controlled bike that can be used by people with paraplegia or other leg disabilities.

News of Darren’s invention spread and he found that other people with disabilities were contacting him to see if he could realise their dreams. Thus, the Dreamfit Foundation was created as a non-for-profit registered charity with Darren Lomman as the CEO.

Since then, Dreamfit, along with volunteer engineering students from the University of Western Australia and Dreamfit Sponsors, have been able to work together on engineering projects that seek to overcome the challenges and frustrations that people with disabilities have to deal with in everyday life.

When Assetivity heard about the fantastic work that the Dreamfit Foundation was involved with, many of the members of staff offered up their expertise and services. After determining how Assetivity could help, it was decided that we could best be used to manage their assets. A proper store was needed to house stock, bar coding installed to control issues, an asset control system to keep assets maintained and a financial system created to manage budgets and depreciation. Assetivity donated $15,000 to help install large compactuses in order to create a proper store and with great team work, some muscle and some fun, the mess is now starting to look like an engineering workshop. Assetivity is very proud to be in a position to be able to help such a worthwhile foundation, our relationship with Dreamfit will continue for many years to come.
