The challenge

Hydraulic computer tableNathan has severe muscle pain and muscle imbalances. He can only sit at his computer for a short time before fatigue forces him to stop.

After a number of fixed geometric solutions had been tested, and after consultation with the occupational therapist, it was decided to design a table that could be easily raised, lowered or rotated so as effectively to change its shape. This avoids the early onset of fatigue from a fixed position. The table was achieved by modifying an hydraulically operated drawing board.

Nathan can easily change table height and effective shape, which means he can now work for longer periods.
