Table to fit rising chairAn elderly gentleman, needing massage therapy, who sits in a rising chair, could only be massaged on his arms and shoulders if his arms were horizontal in front of him. Massaging his arms hanging loose was not an option. He also wanted a reading desk.

A wooden table was made with a plywood top in three parts. Each side panel was covered with stick-on slippery plastic film. The centre section, which is hinged to a transverse square steel tube with an adjustable prop, was given one coat of varnish which gave enough friction to prevent his newspaper from sliding off. The table was mounted on castors to be easily moved by his wife.

The client now has a massage facility, reading desk and table for meals all in one unit.
