CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To enable an individual with quadriplegia to fish. A purchased rod mount was used to make a lightweight rod holder which clamps to the footplate strut of a wheelchair. The holder is made from 19 millimeter chrome-plated steel curtain rods. A horizontal arm passes from the footplate strut on the right side, a vertical arm to the appropriate height, and then a smaller horizontal arm coming toward the user's body. The connection between the arms are machined from 25 millimeter square rod. The central one can be pivoted so the user can set the rod at the best position. TITLE: Wheelchair Fishing and Photography.
