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.

Seat back 

Photos1 Photos2

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.

Alternative solution

The client’s Stressless Consul 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 repurposed ice cream tubs.

An octagonal base was made with wooden clips to retain the chair’s base ring.

A separate request was subsequently received for a similar chair, for which a different solution was developed.
