CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To enable an individual with spinal cord injury to use his computer from his wheelchair. A purchased self-assembly desk was modified to accommodate a powered wheelchair. Two 100-millimeter-high panels were added to the bottom sides of the desk to increase the height and enable the user to get his feet under the desk. A plywood panel was added across the back to strengthen it and the shelf below the desk top was removed. A U-shaped notch was cut in the keyboard surface to accommodate the wheelchair controls and enable the user to get close enough to the desk to reach the computer components. A minitor stand was built and added to place the monitor at optimum viewing height. A horizontal CPU was placed next to the monitor and the printer was placed on a shelf above the monitor and CPU.
