CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To provide a child with multiple disabilities with a work and play surface. Using an existing round table as a base, a removable square tabletop with a cut out in the center of each side was designed to be clamped on. Made of 18-millimeter (mm) thick MDF, the corners of the top were rounded and wooden cleats were fitted under each of the four sides. The cleats are turned and locked with T-bolts to secure the square top to the table. A platform of 9-millimeter plywood was built to provide foot support. Each corner has a cut out to accommodate the table legs. To create a non-slip surface, a layer of beach sand was sprinkled between each layer of varnish. DIMENSIONS: The table top is 120 mm square and the corners are rounded to a radius of 150 mm. The cut outs are 270 mm wide x 150 mm deep. The foot support is 700 mm square x 100 mm high.
