The challenge

Radiator control deviceThis client has severe muscular defects, is confined to a wheelchair and has poor reach and strength with his hands. His radiators have low controls out of reach.

After several attempts with long reach devices a linkage was attached to each radiator with a handle at the top. The linkage gives sufficient mechanical advantage.

The client can now adjust the controls from his wheelchair with minimum effort.
