---- CUSTOMIZED ADAPTATION --------- PURPOSE: To provide a custom adapted game ramp to play pool for a young adult with cerebral palsy. Due to the cerebral palsy the young adult was unable to control his arm movements and sufficiently use a cue. A ramp was created using a 9 millimeter piece of plywood. The design included a small landing at the top of the ramp for setting the ball, shallow sides to guide the ball in a straight line, and smooth contact points and the edge cushioned so not to damage the felt and woodwork on the table. The angle of the ramp is adjustable by simply moving the support forward or backwards in one of four slots on the base. Instead of a landing, a hole large enough for the ball to sit was created. The ramp is attractive, smoothly sanded and finished with clear varnish. TITLE: Playing Pool. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 30, Number 1, January 2010: p. 12. PAGES: 2 (including cover).
