Richie is in his forties and he has limited use of his right arm. He has partial use of his shoulder and elbow but he can’t rotate his forearm or wrist – his thumb is always uppermost. He has a spoon (see photos) which he acquired about forty years ago. He can’t find a replacement and he asks if one can be made. I’m thinking about a piece of stainless steel from a discarded kitchen sink – or does anyone know where a spoon like this can be bought?

We have recently had a referral for a client, a man in his twenties/early thirties, who uses a wheelchair and has MS. He is a budding artist and has displayed and sold some of his work in the past to supplement his income and raise funds for MS. The issue he poses is that although he can hold a crayon quite easily the problem really lies with controlling his tremors.
