Having had multiple sclerosis for many years, this man was now unable to press the control buttons on his orthopaedic armchair. He can only use the “heel” of the palm of his hand. A holder, which clips onto the table, was made for the control pad. Four protruding rubber – sprung buttons, bearing the appropriate arrows, were removed from a disused keyboard and fitted into the holder top plate. When depressed, these operate the control buttons beneath.

The client is now able to operate his armchair easily, frequently and at will, very much a necessity for his uncomfortable condition.
