Bracket to enable foot operation of camera
Having been paraplegic from birth, this lady is extremely adept with her feet but found the operation of her camera almost impossible. Any type of permanent mounting would give rise to further problems.
An internally padded aluminium bracket was made and attached to the camera. Her arched foot, inside the bracket, grips the camera which is then operated by her big toe. As the camera is rather heavy, the bracket design is being reconsidered to give better balance and ease of operation. (Helpfully, her camera has a back screen.)
It is now possible for photographs to be taken at any time without assistance.
