CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To prevent quick-release wheelchair wheels from being inadvertently released. The push rims on the quick-release wheels had been removed because the chair user could not propel the chair independently. Doing so, however, exposed the buttons which released the wheels, creating the danger of an inadvertent release if the wheels were bumped while going through doors. The quick-release feature was locked by machining sleeves to fit over the buttons and gluing them in place. TITLE: Assistance over Time. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 25, Number 1, Autumn 2005.
