The challenge

Support for communication aidThe client, a young person, is unable to speak and was being taught to use a communication aid. He needed to use this aid both in his wheelchair and his armchair but the manufacturer did not have any suitable means of fixing it within his limited reach.

A suitable platform to hold the device was made and suitable supports were made from electrical conduit that would fit both the wheelchair and armchair fixings.

The aid is now held in a position where he can be trained to use it.
