The challenge

This wheelchair user has only one functional arm and could not open the windows to permit ventilation.

Redundant elbow crutches were modified with a ring fitted to the foot of the crutch which when fitted over the handle allows him to unlock, open, close and re-lock the windows with ease.

The client’s quality of life has improved and they now have freedom to ventilate the house at will.
