Project / Project number: SF2402 /
This client wanted to use a “Neater Eater” (a device to steady her hand as she fed herself). She wanted the device to be positioned higher than a typical table and to be able to remove and engage the support rapidly with the minimum of help.
A strong but lightweight table support was made from glued-and-screwed plywood. The hollow construction was reinforced in the two areas which held the Neater Eater‘s clamps. The support lifts off the client’s existing table easily, because it is held by a steel bracket sliding onto the existing table and a hinged leg to carry the weight of the ‘free’ end.
The client is now able to feed herself comfortably.
