arms for ejector seatA girl with muscular dystrophy had difficulty getting in and out of a chair, even with the assistance of an ejector seat, due to lack of upper limb strength. She required outside help at all times for this purpose.

Two e-commode chair arms were fitted to the ejector seat using metal plates to which female stub pipes were attached. These mated with corresponding male stubs fitted to the arms. Button locks were used to facilitate easy arm removal and MDF was used to strengthen the ejector seat base.

The client can now easily leave the chair using her own arm strength and without help thereby regaining valuable independence.
