Pump control

The client is now bedridden and fed nutrients via a peristaltic pump, but if this went into alarm when her carer was not present, her grip was insufficient to turn a control knob.

The pump was located onto a plywood base on which were mounted to simple bearing blocks to accept a spindle with a large knob accessible to the client. On the other end of the spindle a nylatron dog clutch was secured.

The client is now able to turn the pump control herself.
