---- CUSTOMIZED ADAPTATION --------- PURPOSE: To create a custom adapted chair insert for a child with global developmental delay and epilepsy. The child had outgrown his previous insert and a new version was required. The new insert has a plywood back set at a 10-degree recline, a plywood base and footrest, height-adjustable thoracic fins, and cushions made from fabric-covered, 25-millimeter foam. There are also a range of harness mounting points, and the child uses the chair with a waist harness in a position specified by his therapist. The insert is attached to a dining chair using two 25-millimeter buckled straps, one under the seat and one at the back. A castored base was added to the dining chair with lockable castors on the rear. This means the chair and insert unit is easy to move in and out from the table and to other places in the house as needed. TITLE: Eating with the family. JOURNAL: TAD Journal.
