CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To enable an individual with Parkinson's disease to engage in a variety of activities while seated in his recliner. The customized table has a large plywood base that fits under the chair and is held in place by the weight of the chair. The chair's castors slot into small holes in the base, holding both the chair and the table completely stable. A post with a spring-loaded carriage that moves up and down from a gym set was mounted to the base. The table support was bracketed to the carriage and held in place with a tri-nut. This enables the user to change the vertical position of the table by loosening the nut, moving the table surface to the desired height, and tightening the nut. The table also swivels horizontally, allowing the user to push it out of the way when moving to or from the chair. The swivel mechanism can be locked in a range of positions using a spring-loaded pin. The angle of the table is also adjustable, allowing it to be tilted for reading or flat for eating. A lip on the side facing the user prevents items from sliding off. The tilt mechanism is also held in place with a tri-nut and an additional locking pin secures it in the horizontal position.
