Knee restraintThe client has muscular dystrophy and requires an electric scooter to move about. To assist his posture a means was required to keep his knees in but there was no standard equipment available.

A bar was fixed to the seat and hinged in such a way it could be swung up out of the way to permit access. The end of the bar where the leg rested was padded with pipe insulation. When in the down position the bar located into a ā€œUā€ shaped clip which held it rigidly.

The client now sits in the correct position.
