The challenge

Hand gripOliver is a bright and engaging young boy who has cerebal palsy and is a wheelchair user. He needs to be able to hold on to something for support whilst using his other hand to touch or grab whatever is in front of him.

A gripping support board was made, covered top and bottom with anti-slip material. The underside also has suckers to hold on to smooth surfaces and clamps have been made to engage in slots along the front of the board for added security.

Oliver now finds it easier to play and engage with things.
