|The client has poor muscle control and needs to be supported by his carer while being encouraged to reach out to play with toys and books.
The client’s parents bought a commercial toy stand and a plywood book rest was made to fit. The straps allow the book rest to be adjusted to suit different seat heights. Wire arms hold the book pages open.

|The client had purchased a new wheelchair and wished to transfer the seat back of the old one to the new one, but its round tubular supports did not fit the square tubular brackets of the new chair.
The round plastic quick-release brackets from the old chair were fixed to the new one with purpose-made aluminium adapter plates.

|The client lives in an upstairs flat and required a wheelchair threshold ramp at the exterior door downstairs. The ramp has to be removable by the client’s wife so the door can be closed and not interfere with other residents.
The ramp was made in four sections, as shown.

|The client’s reclining chair was unusual, having a circular base in the form of a ring. Beneath the ring was a plastic ‘bearing’ to allow the chair to rotate. To establish the correct height, the chair was raised temporarily on stacks of ice cream tubs.
An octagonal base was made with wooden clips to retain the chair’s base ring.
