---- CUSTOMIZED ADAPTATION --------- PURPOSE: To create a custom adapted tray to fit on a wheelchair used by an individual with cerebral palsy and intellectual disability. This individual spends most of her day in her wheelchair and needs something to occupy her and a surface to rest it on; in other words, a portable table which she can use for her walkman, DVD player or to hold a magazine, etc. The tray is made from 9 millimeter plywood with a lip added around the front and side edges to stop objects falling off (with gaps at the corners to facilitate cleaning). Velcro strips are used to attach it to the wheelchair, as they are easy to wrap around the arms of the wheelchair and give the flexibility of moving the tray nearer to or further from the individual as required. TITLE: Simple but effective. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 30, Number 3, July 2010: p. 14-15. PAGES: 3 with cover.
