CUSTOM ADAPTATIONPURPOSE: To provide children unable to stand without support with a table incorporating grips that provide support when standing or sitting. The rectangular tabletop is fitted to the base of a height-adjustable table and is made from a single piece of 12-millimeter (mm) plywood. On each lengthwise half of the tabletop, two sets of 37-centimeter (cm) long slots are cut using a router. These "rungs" are two cm wide on one half and three cm wide on the other to accommodate different hand sizes. The slots can be used as rungs as a child stands from a sitting position or sits in a chair. A second tabletop of identical dimensions but with no slots is made to be used as an overlay when the children using the table do not need support. The overlay is held in place using Velcro strips.
