--- CUSTOM ADAPTATION --- PURPOSE: To provide a means for an individual with lupus causing limited hand strength to operate her washing machine. The cycle setting dial on the washing machine has a raised center and indentations onn either side, and the user was unable to grasp it to turn it to the desired setting. A simple turning aid was created using waterproofed wood. A block of wood was cut and two wooden prongs made from dowels were screwed and glued into the bottom of the block. All edges were rounded and the block and prongs were sanded smooth and covered with Estapol. The user slides the prongs on either side of the raised center of the knob in the indentations and turns the knob by pushing on the block. TITLE: Washing Machine Aid. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 25, Number 2, Winter 2005: P. 8. PAGES: 2 (including cover).
Notes: Estapol is a trademark.
Price: Contact manufacturer.
