A young man was unable to brush his own teeth because of an inability to move his arms enough to effect brushing action at the desired height.

A holder was manufactured to firmly restrain a battery operated toothbrush. Through the specially designed lever actuated gearbox the bristles of brush could be rotated through 180 degrees so that having effectively cleaned half of upper and lower teeth, a change of orientation of brush head allowed the other side of the mouth to be cleaned.

This young man can now clean his teeth unaided.
