The challenge

Motorised table topA lady with arthritis was unable to push the cantilever table to one side to operate her riser recliner chair and had to wait for a carer to do so.

The table top was provided with telescopic sliders enabling it to be pushed sideways by a fitted electric motor, sprockets and a chain. It has a remote control so that it can be moved to one side at the push of a button, or back again.

This has helped the lady to regain her independence. As its height, shape and size are the same as before, it remains as familiar as ever to her.
