CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To enable a wheelchair user to operate a sewing machine from her wheelchair. The tray was made of plywood with a lip on the front three sides to prevent thread and other items from rolling off. The tray fits into the mount of the existing wheelchair tray, but also rests on the wheelchair arms which bear most of the weight of the machine. The attachment of the existing mount stops the tray from tipping forward with the weight of the machine. The tray was designed to fit around the controls of the powered wheelchair to enable the user to get as close to the sewing machine as possible. The edges of the tray that rest on the wheelchair arms were angled with a smooth grade to prevent the user from bumping her arms. TITLE: Painting and Sewing Aids. JOURNAL: TAD Journal.
