Client has Congenital Myasthenic Syndrome and her weak arms cause difficulty with lifting them above waist height, so has trouble with doing makeup, hair-drying, hair straightening, etc. She had tried resting arms on, for example, a dressing table but they still have a mind of the own and drift outwards.

The solution

A simple padded wooden “bookends” support holds the client’s arms at a convenient height and stop them from drifting outwards.

The benefit

The client can now perform daily tasks without assistance.
