ADJUSTABLE SUN LAMP STAND
--- CUSTOM ADAPTATION --- PURPOSE: To enable an individual with rheumatoid arthritis to access and position a sun lamp used to treat her arthritis. A stand was made from a wheeled table base with a hole drilled in the center. A piece of metal pipe is inserted in the opening. A holder for the lamp was made from two pieces of plywood bolted together with a gap between them. The metal arms of the lamp's existing base fit into the gap, holding it securely, but allowing it to be removed as needed. The holder can be moved up and down the stand by turning an easy-grip wooden peg and the lamp can also be moved horizontally. The pipe can also be removed from the stand for storage.
