Car Seat Hand RestThis client has had polio and although he could turn through 90° in the passenger seat of a car and put his feet on the ground, he could not pull himself upright to get out of the car.

A handrest was fitted between the door pillar and the front seat so that the client could push himself up with his left hand. This consisted of a right angled bracket with the base sitting on the floor of the rear seat and with the upright coming between the front seat and the door pillar. A screwed rod with a beech wood handrest was fitted to the top of the upright arm, this can be adjusted up or down to suit.

For the first time, the client can now get out of the car unaided.
