Modified wheelchair

  • Sophie Morrison

This client has motor neurone disease and requires one angle of wheelchair back to accept food in his mouth and another angle (vertical) to enable him to swallow. The angle must be able to be changed quickly and easily by carer.

The standard back of the wheelchair was modified to hinge with pins slipping into one of three slots, the back being lifted slightly to enable the rapid change of position.

The device enabled the client to be fed comfortably and he expressed his pleasure in a message to the Panel via his computer.
