Standing aidA gentleman with cerebral atrophy required an aid to help him stand supported so that he could be free of his wheelchair on the day of his daughter’s wedding – this was particularly wanted for the taking of the photographs where dad could stand tall and proud next to his daughter.

A baseboard with sliding stabiliser was made, into which two cylindrical tubes were inserted at the top. A backrest with underarm supports was added.

The gentleman is able to stand erect and alone, more importantly he is (at least for photographic purposes) at the same height as his wedding guests.
