The challenge

This nine-year old girl has a deformed right arm and her left arm is a stump finishing above the elbow. She can walk in calipers with difficulty. She wants to help her mum in the kitchen.

A foldaway workstation was designed to include bowl, chopping board and non-slip board. She can either sit or stand while using it and, when not in use, the worktop can be detached and the pole rotated to store. The picture shows it being hand held prior to installation. It was designed and made by a student from the Art and Design Department of the College of York St John in conjunction with Remap.

She can now help her mum in the kitchen.
