CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To provide a means for an individual with cerebral palsy to work on resin models. Because of reduced motor skills and strength in his right hand, the user required a means holding cast resin model pieces in place while he combined or painted them using his stronger hand. A custom stand was created with a heavy steel base containing holes for two vertical steel posts which clamp into place. Each post is equipped with a horizontal arm with a clamp holder at the end. The arm can be rotated 360 degrees for access to all parts of the model. The vertical post can also be swiveled by loosening the calmp at the bottom. A number of clamps were purchased, including small g-clamps and two types of spring-loaded clamps, which were then modified to fit in the clamp holder. One post can be used for a model currently being worked on while the other holds a model that is drying. TITLE: Making Models. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 27, Number 4, January 2008: p. 6-7.
