The challenge

Wheelchair tableThis lady client has multiple sclerosis, exacerbated by a recent stroke. This combination led to difficulty in food preparation as she needed her arms to be supported.

A cantilever style table with splayed legs and casters was produced which allowed the powered chair to enter between the legs. This permitted the use of the chair’s armrests to provide the necessary support for the client’s arms. The table has a lip to limit drop off on all sides except the one nearest the client.

This lady can now carry out a number of tasks in comfort that she previously found difficult or impossible to do.
