CUSTOM ADAPTATIONPURPOSE: To enable an individual with upper extremity disabilities to set and turn on the washing machine. A piece of transparen Lexan was cut into a rectangle and the center was cut-out, creating a frame-style device. The device fits over the knob and is held in place with a hose clamp. This enables the user to turn the knob while still being able to read the printed settings around it. DIMENSIONS: The Lexan is 19 millimeters thick. TITLE: Opening Gambit. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Vol 22, no 2, Winter 2002: p 10-11. PAGES (including cover) 3 2002.
