The client is an early teenage boy with severe cerebral palsy. His parents bought a TV for his bedroom but a position for it could not be found so that he could watch it from his bed. They suggested fixing it high on the wall by means of a bracket , but this was judged to be potentially unstable and unsafe.
An overbed table was suitably reinforced to take the weight of the TV. The table, being on castors, could be moved over the bed as needed, but could also be repositioned so that the TV could be watched also from wheelchair, armchair etc.
With so few life-enhancing possibilities open to him, TV obviously becomes a very important element in his everyday life and his opportunities to watch it have now been greatly increased.
