DO IT YOURSELF ENTRYPURPOSE: To enable individuals with spinal cord injury or severe physical disabilities to restore picture frames without bending or lifting. The custom-designed workstation consists of a worktable that includes a separate revolving grid that provides an indexed tilting mechanism and 350-degree rotation. This provides the user full appropriate positioning of the frame without the need to bend over the table or lift. The table accommodates a standing worker and a height-adjustable stool or chair accommodates seated use. A footrest, which provides back strain relief when one foot is placed on it, is motised into the front legs of the table. The grid surface of the worktable has a 90-degree indexed rotation that enables the user to access all sides of the frame, and a 30-degree indexed tilt that provides access to the inner edges of the frame. Release and locking of tilt and rotation is done using control handles on the table front. Gas springs raise the frame and require minimal force to lower the frame and grid back to horizontal. The table surface was designed as a grid to allow paint, finish, and solvent spills to drip though to prevfent blemishes on the frame in progress. Frames are attached to the grid with a series of clamps that hold the frame by the unfinished inner edge. The system supports a variety of frame sizes.
