A wheelchair client with restricted arm movement had problems when he went out with his friends to a pub or restaurant because he could not get near enough to a table to feed himself. As a result his friends had to feed him which he found embarrassing.

A portable tray was made which attached to the wheelchair arms with Velcro. This was raised above arm level about 125mm to enable him to easily lift his food or drink to his mouth. While in transit the tray was designed to hang on the back of the wheelchair.

The client could go out with his family and friends and eat and drink without aid, hopefully benefiting his self-esteem.Special tray for wheelchair 1Special tray for wheelchair 2
