CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To provide mobility for a Dreama Sleep System used by a child with leukodystrophy and severe scoliosis. For comfort and to slow the development of the scoliosis, the child spends most of his time lying on his side. However, doing so in the bed meant he was isolated from household activities. To make the bed mobile, a frame was constructed of square tubular steel with a plywood base attached to the underside. Attaching the base to the underside of the frame enabled the frame to serve as a lip to prevent the system from sliding. Each of the four legs of the frame is equipped with a locking caster. A double-acting screw mechanism enables one end to be elevated above the horizontal. A large tubular steel frame is attached to the elevating end for mobility. DIMENSIONS: The base plywood is 12 millimeters (mm) thick. The platform is 370 mm from the floor and the elevating end can be raised an additional 350 mm. TITLE: Drema Base. JOURNAL: TAD Journal.
