Recliner handle extension

The Client had a stroke and has severe limitation of the use of her hands. Specifically, she is unable to work the lever that releases the foot rest of her recliner.

A strip of metal was cut to length and bent such that when bolted to the existing operating lever, the user would find the handle further forward, easier to hold and require less effort to use. Two 5mm engineering bolts were used to fix the lever to the operating arm and a wooden drawer handle fixed to the other end. The result is a device that is easier to find and hold, and takes less effort to use.

The client can operate her recliner independently.
