The challenge

Holder for long hairA young mother with a paralysed arm needed to be able to tie back her pony tail so it did not get in the way when she was caring for her baby but she could not do so unaided.

A frame was designed that stands behind a chair and that also holds a hair clip. The client, one-handed, can then put her hair into the frame and with it kept in place she can fix it with the clip.

The control that this device provides has helped a mother to care for her baby independently.
