CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To provide a means for an individual with low-level paraplegia to exercise his/her legs. The individual had a set of exercise pedals but needed a means of attaching them to a wheelchair. The pedals needed to be 325 millimeters above the floor and 370 millimeters forward from the top of the wheelchair footplate sockets. A steel tube frame was welded with swan hooks that fit into the wheelchair footplate sockets and a crossbar on which the pedals were mounted. A forward T-bar was added for stability. To use the device, the wheelchair footplates are removed and the swan hooks are inserted in the same sockets. TITLE: Wheelchair Exercise. JOURNAL: TAD Journal.
