---- CUSTOMIZED ADAPTATION --------- PURPOSE: To create a customized bunk bed ladder for a child with Edwards Syndrome. To protect the child from injury the bottom three rungs of the bunk bed ladder needed to be screened off by putting mesh on the inside. However, this would make the child’s sister unable to use the ladder rungs safely to climb into the top bunk. A new rung unit was created which completely covers the bottom three existing rungs. The new rung unit has mesh fabric on the inside, and a new set of rungs set out from the edge of the bed where the child with Edwards Syndrome cannot reach them. This unit slots over the existing third rung and can be easily lifted in or out as needed providing protection for the child and access safe access to the top bunk for her sister.
