CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To enable a tall caregiver to safely push a wheelchair. Designed to work with a variety of wheelchairs and to be removable for use on multiple chairs, a set of tubular steel extension arms with handgrips at the top was fashioned. The extensions are adjustable and hook to the chair frame at the bottom. The height of the handles can be adjusted using wing nuts on the verical uprights and the width between the handlebars is adjustable using a wing nut on the horizontal bar behind the backrest. The extensions also are equipped with C-clamps near the top of the upright tubes that fit over the existing push handles, as well as with hook rods that clamp to the rear of the armrests, making the unit stable and secure. TITLE: Height No Problem. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Vol. 21 no. 2, Winter 2001: p. 18-19. PAGES (including cover): 3 2001.
