Special worktop

The challenge

Special worktop 1 Sharon, who has multiple sclerosis, is seated in her wheelchair all the time. She wanted to use her kitchen worktops for the usual purpose, but her chair would not allow her to sit close enough to do so.

A new worktop was provided which would pull forward on rails to allow her to sit at it comfortably. The top was hinged at the back to give access for cleaning underneath.

Special worktop 2

Sharon can now use the kitchen surfaces much more easily than before and they can be easily cleaned.
