The challenge

Wheelchair mounted easelAn elderly artist is partially paralysed and uses a wheelchair. She wished to continue her hobby.

An easel was constructed from 12mm ply with thinner triangular supports hinged to the back. Two pieces of steel tube suitably bent were fitted to the triangular supports using pipe clips. The free ends of these tubes conveniently slotted into the existing tube frame of the wheelchair.

The client is now able to continue with her hobby, the assembly being easily fitted or removed from the chair by her carer. The easel folds flat for storage when not in use.
