The challenge

IMG_20180918_201126782Client with short arms requires an adjustable bracket for the controller of her wheelchair to make it easier to reach and to move out of the way when not needed.

The solution

  An expanding mandrel clamps into the tube of the armrest to support the bracket. A dovetail groove allows the two parts to separate easily.                             

Bracket in normal position

Bracket tipped out of the way

The benefit

The joystick is now at a convenient position and can be easily adjusted.
