---- CUSTOMIZED ADAPTATION --------- PURPOSE: To create a custom adapted changing table for a mother with cerebral palsy. This individual wanted a changing table that she could use from a kneeling position and located a base that was the right height to be adapted. A table top was created from chip-board, with a 75 millimeter-high pine frame around the sides to keep the mattress in position. Two of the four sides are hinged so they can drop down 180 degrees, making it easier for the user to slide the baby onto the table. When in the raised position, the sides are held in place by magnetic catches, which are easier for the individual to use than pad bolts. A wooden shelf was added underneath the table top, which the individual finds very handy for storing baby paraphernalia. The final touch was a small strap which attaches with Velcro, which the individual can use to keep the baby in position while she is changing her. TITLE: Keeping balance. JOURNAL: TAD Journal.
