---- CUSTOMIZED ADAPTATION --------- PURPOSE: To create a custom adaptation for an individual with weakness in his upper limbs. The individual was weakened to the point where he could manipulate his arm but could not lift the arm’s weight and therefore could not lift eating utensils to feed him self. A plastic sling is used to hold the individual’s arm, hung by a rubber bungee cord, affixed to an overhead arm on a swivel above the bed, and placed in a neutral position approximately an inch or so above mouth level. The individual could then push down to pick up food and then relax his arm so it rose to mouth level. TITLE: The Arm Assist. WEBSITE: Workshop Solutions.
