Raised wheelchair footrest
A client with one leg amputated wanted to rest his remaining leg on the footrest of his wheelchair. The existing footrest extended too far even when folded back and did not allow the client to rotate the wheelchair in his sitting room due to lack of space.
The existing footrest was removed and a replacement made that could be folded upwards. This is flush with the seat and therefore does not extend beyond the wheelchair as the previous one had done.
The client is able to fold up his footrest when necessary and rotate the wheelchair in his sitting room without hitting other items of furniture.
