CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To enable an individual with a spinal cord injury to care for her baby. A standard wooden crib with a drop front was purchased and adapted. First the legs were exended using matching wood to provide the necessary wheelchair clearance. The drop front was then removed and cut in half to form two gates. Once the front corner posts were reinforced with steel brackets, the gates were attached with swinging bar hinges. The gates stay open until they self-close after an initial push. The gates secure with slide barrel bolts at the top and bottom. For additional safety, a third bolt was added inside the cot at the base of the mattress. TITLE: Raised Cot, Mark 2.
