Wheelchair Arm GuardYoung lad has quadriplegic cerebral palsy and uses a wheelchair. His right arm, at shoulder and elbow, tends to rotate backwards behind him at any time without notice. If it happens when he is being wheeled through a doorway, it could damage his right arm.

An adjustable guard rail was made from plastic piping with clips to enable it to be fitted to and detached from the wheelchair. Soft pipe insulation was added for comfort. Any staff member, after attaching the guard rail, can confidently wheel the lad through doorways, with no danger of harm to him.
