Judy, who has multiple sclerosis, had difficulty in turning her pages of technical magazines on her wheelchair table, owing to poor control of her fingers.

The panel made a raised magazine support with a vertical gap to accommodate the spine and a covering of nonslip material. A serrated gripstick, with a rubber finger stall on the tip, was made to help Judy separate and turn the pages. The rubber stall provided enough friction to slide the corner of one page over the rest of the magazine whilst in a near-vertical position. The angle of the support also helped Judy’s vision.
