LIPSTICK INSPECTION WORKSTATION
--- CUSTOM ADAPTATION --- PURPOSE: To enable an individual with repetitive strain injury to continue lipstick inspection work. This work station is designed to reduce shoulder strain, take weight off the arms, and minimize movement while permitting the task of inspecting lipsticks to continue. The work station has a wood base covered with a non-slip grip liner. Two wheelchair armrests rest on the base, forming a sloping triangle, with a foam pad at each end. A series of blocks and wing nuts allow the height of the armrests to be adjusted. The second part of the workstation is a low platform on which the lipsticks are placed; an edge along the back prevents the lipsticks from rolling off. The works station is placed at the edge of a table; the user rests his/her elbows on the end pads and the forearms on the sloping armrests. The platform with the lipsticks is immediately behind, enabling the user to reach the lipsticks without lifting the arms from the armrests. TITLE: Quality Work. JOURNAL: TAD Journal.
