DO IT YOURSELF -- PURPOSE: To make daily grooming tasks more accessible to individuals who use wheelchairs or who are unable to stand for long periods. This article, included in a chapter entitled "Bedroom & Getting Dressed," provides suggestion for creating an accessible vanity and personal grooming area. Suggestions include using a small, sturdy table with a comfortable seated height and sufficient knee clearance for a dressing table. If needed, select a chair that meets the user's specific needs. Mount a lightweight mirror above the table at a height comfortable for the user. Adding an additional tabletop or wall-mounted magnifying mirror on an extending arm may also be helpful. Lighting can be provided by a height-adjustable tabletop or clamp-on lamp. Other recommendations cover keeping bottles and jars from tipping over and keeping items from rolling away or off the edge of the table. AUTHOR: Greenstein, D. TITLE: Dressing Table.
