CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To enable an individual with arthritis to rise to a standing position from a seat without armrests. This device was designed to be portable for use with a variety of armless chairs and church pews. The frame with a U-shaped base was made of 20 millimeter steel tubing and steel tubing armrests were attached to the base. The front arms or prongs of the base have wide flat strips that provide a stable surface for the user as she pushes on the armrests to stand. A seat and back for the device were sewn of Breezeway fabric and attached to the frame with Velcro to premit removal for washing. DIMENSIONS (WxD): The base is 475 x 300 millimeters and the flat stability strips are 50 millimeters wide. The armrests are 240 millimeters high. COLOR: The tubing was painted with blue epoxy enamel.
