Wheelchair tray for studentAlec’s problem was that his arm would involuntarily fly up forcibly and endanger anyone who was standing nearby. As he was a student, with others invariably around, this was quite a problem.

A larger version of a standard chair tray was made that would allow his arm to be held down with Velcro straps that he can release with ease when necessary. In addition a handle was provided for him to hold, that is capable of swivelling to accommodate a laptop computer when required. The exact position of the arm restraint was determined by a physiotherapist.

Alec is now able to work without fear of hitting anyone and his fellow students are very grateful!
