Wheelchair cup holder

The client has poor grip and has requested a cup-holder, mounted at the right height on the arm of her wheelchair so that she can drink comfortably with a straw.

A clamp was cut from a block of aluminium with a pinch screw to clamp it onto the tubular arm of the wheelchair. A 3″ long arm of 1/8″ aluminium was screwed to the clamp. the arm was bent over to form a level tray to which the cup-holder is pop-riveted. The cup-holder was adapted from an obsolete older model.

The client can now drink independently.
