-------- CUSTOMIZED ADAPTATION --------- PURPOSE: To provide a custom adapted food preparation spike board for an individual with left arm amputation. Current spike boards were not large enough to accommodate the user’s desire to cook large items such as large meats and large quantities of vegetables. A 400 by 300 millimeter PVC chopping board was acquired. Then 304 grade stainless steel, which is safe to use with food, was used to make a master pin and 30 copies. Each pin has a pointed tip which protrudes 10 millimeters above the board, a small ridge in the center and a wider shoulder at the opposite end point. Three groups of nine holes were drilled across the board for the pins, and counter drilled a wider section for each shoulder. The pins were press fitted into place, with the ridges and head holding them firmly in position and the shoulder sitting flush with the bottom of the board. The press-fit style provides a strong seal that if subjected to some heat there is no fear of the pins falling out. Finally, non-slip rubber pads were added to each corner of the base so the board would not slip of the kitchen benchtop. TITLE: One-handed Cooking. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 30, Number 1, January 2010: p. 15. PAGES: 2 (including cover).
