CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To enable a child with neurological disabilities to participate in the classroom. This chair began with the standard classroom chair. Side supports were created from metal plates and fixed to a bracket underneath the seat. Covered rectangular foam wedges were later fitted inside the supports to hold the child in position and prevent the child's knees from splaying outward. Glides were also placed on the legs of the chair to make it easier to move on carpeted floors. TITLE: School Desk and Chair. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Vol. 21 no. 3, Spring 2001: p.16.
