--- "DO IT YOURSELF" ENTRY ------- PURPOSE: Using short stubby prostheses in elderly bilateral above-knee amputees has been advocated by several experts. A table was designed to facilitate donning stubby prostheses. Table is made of 3 sheets of 3/4" plywood 18 inches square. The table measures 18 inches in height, width, and depth. This height was selected to facilitate the table's use from the patient's wheelchair or bed. Across the top of the table is a horizontal platform with two cutout slots for the prosthesis. SKILLS REQUIRED: Woodworking.
