|The client suffers with Parkinson’s Disease and is permanently flexed 90 degrees at the hip. As a result, eating is very difficult to do with dignity. The legs of standard over-chair tables would not pass under the client’s riser/recliner chair and the OT did not wish to raise it
The table that was made has a table top set at the lowest possible height above the knees, narrow enough to pass between the chair arms and legs wide enough to pass either side of the chair.
Subsequently, the client asked for a caddy to hold her spectacles, TV remote control, etc.
