Sliding Desktop Hand Support

The challenge

Our client was unable to use a pen to write or draw because she did not have sufficient muscular strength to move her hand and arm across the table.

The solution

We provided a “skateboard” with ball bearings on the base, and a padded top that she could rest her arm on. As a result, she was able to do school work.

The benefit

An unexpected benefit was that the exercise she obtained by moving the skateboard around on the table improved her muscular strength and after 6 months she no longer needed to use the device because her strength had improved to the extent that she could write and draw without the additional support.
