A young autistic child requires feeding from a feeding pump through a tube directly into his stomach overnight. He plays with the pump settings resulting in his feed being interrupted and possible hypoglycaema. A means of restricting access to the pump is required within the limited range imposed by the length of the feeding tube.

The child sleeps in a high-sided cot with Perspex panels. One panel was replaced by a pair of plywood boards which are clamped to the cot side without damaging it. The rucksack containing the pump is hung on the outside board with the feeding tube passing through a hole into the cot.
