Mobile crane foot platform
Patient with rheumatoid arthritis and severe water retention was unable to locate both her feet on the relatively small platform of the Harvest crane that she used to raise her into a standing position
A larger foot plate was manufactured. Because of client weight, due consideration had to be made to the strength of the new plate structure, which comprised 50×25 hollow steel section. Platform floor comprised 18mm plywood with carpet tile finish to provide a non-slip surface. An edging of standard copper tubing with 50mm insulation provided a soft edge.
The knee support bracket was also removed from the crane pillar, the exposed end being covered by suitable padding.
The client can now locate feet safely onto crane platform.
