CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To enable an individual with post-polio syndrome who uses a wheelchair to open the childproof gates in a retirement village. A tool was constructed of a long piece of aluminum tube and a piece of aluminum sheet. A bicycle handgrip was added to one end of the tube and a shaped piece of aluminum sheet was rivited to the other end. The aluminum sheet has a U-shaped cutout that fits around the lock pin and enables the user to lift the pin. TITLE: Retirement Projects. JOURNAL: TAD Journal.
