Pivoting Table for Powered Armchair


This client had very limited strength in her upper body and wanted a table which had a reasonably large surface area but could be pushed aside rapidly if she wanted to vacate the seat. It also had to be fitted to a particular seating position of her powered armchair.


A steel hollow-section frame was constructed to support the table-top. The weight of the chair held the base of the frame securely. The frame has a vertical tube into which a steel bar (fitted to the underside of the table-top) slotted.

The table pivoted out of the way horizontally.


With a large surface area, the extreme unsupported end of the table-top required support, and it was designed to sit on the arm of the chair.


In operation, the client found it easy to pivot the table away from her.
