Leg raiser

Leg raiserThe client has spina bifida and due to her immobility her legs are very swollen and heavy. She wanted to be able to put her feet up. Available chairs included a reclining backrest which she did not want.

A pivoted platform was devised, attached to a subframe beneath a normal fireside chair. A mains powered reversing drill, driving a screw and nut, provided the means to raise and lower the platform via a wired remote control. The client can now sit comfortably with her feet up whenever she wishes without needing to ask for help.
