CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To enable an individual with quadriplegia to operate a computer. This desk was deigned to accommodate an individual with C5 quadriplegia whose wheelchair seating necessitated his sitting with his legs outstretched. A desktop was suspended from a ceiling beam to eliminate legs that would interfere with the wheelchair. A track ball mouse was mounted on a flexible stand fitted to a clamp on the desk, which held it both vertically and rigid so it could be operated with a mouthstick. A small keyboard is also mounted vertically next to the track ball for mouthstick access. A microphone mounted nearby enables voice operation of the computer. TITLE: Mouth Operated Technology.
