CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To provide safe, supported seating while sailing independently for an individual with cerebral palsy. The individual had purchased a fiberglass seat, but it did not provide sufficient support for her upper body. A contoured seat insert was created using foam and covered in fabric. The insert is attached to the fiberglass seat with Velcro. To provide additional support for her shoulders and prevent her from slipping forward or sideways, foam-padded wooden tabs were affixed to the fiberglass seat at shoulder height. TITLE: Safe Sailing. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 25, Number 4, Summer 2005. PAGES: 10-11. Number of pages: 3 (including cover).
