---- CUSTOMIZED ADAPTATION --------- PURPOSE: To create a lounge modification for seniors and individuals with mobility disabilities to make it easier to get up from a lounger (i.e. couch) that is low to the ground. This adaptation was created for a woman who found it increasingly difficult to stand up after sitting on her couch due to increase muscle weakness in her upper legs. The couch was set very low to the floor so extra strength was required to rise up to a standing position. A TAD volunteer took measurements and determined the best height for a block frame on which the lounge could rest that would raise the height and reduce the need for increased lift strength. The woman's couch is a sectional that is split into four separate blocks so bases were prepared for each section. A dark stain was used to match the frames with the wood on the couch.
