--- CUSTOM ADAPTATION --- PURPOSE: To provide a chair with a seat high enough for a user with mobility disabilities and upper extremity weakness to rise from that the user could transport to doctor appointment and other outings. A folding aluminum director's chair was purchased and aluminum tubing in the same dimensions as that of the chair frame was used to create extensions for the chair's legs. Internasl sleeves were inserted in the tubing and epoxy glue and pins were used to ensure strength. Aluminum crossbars were installed on either side of the seat between the legs to ensure stability. Wheels were installed on the left legs so that the chair could be tipped and wheeled into place when folded; the wheels do not rest on the floor when the chair is in use. Rubber stops were installed on all four legs to prevent tipping. A carrying handle was added to the frame for use during transport. When additional seat height was required, a firm, vinyl covered cushion was mounted on plywood that sits across the existing seat on two metal angle bars bolted to the frame of the original director's chair. The cushion slides out when the chair is folded for transport. DIMENSIONS: Without the cushion, the seat height is 650 millimeters. TITLE: Portable Chair. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 25, Number 2, Winter 2005: P. 12-13. PAGES: 3 (including cover).
