CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To enable an individual with muscle weakness and balance disabilities to work safely in the kitchen. A stable shower stool with a large, molded plastic seat was modified for use in the kitchen. To increase the height, the lower sections of the legs, which have height-adjustment holes and rubber feet, were removed, as were the spring clips in the upper legs. The legs were then extended with a stub insert tube. New holes were drilled in the extensions for the spring clips and the clips refitted. The lower legs were then reattached. To provide a large, secure handgrip on each side of the seat, a length of aluminum tube was bent to form a rectanglular loop and the shorter ends were bent upward to form handgrips. The handgrip sections were fitted with foam tubing for padding and the ends of the handgrips were joined with a stub insert. The rectangular assembly was then screwed to the legs. DIMENSIONS: The height of the modified stool adjusts from 500 to 600 millimeters. TITLE: Kitchen Seat. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 27, Number 2, August 2007: p. 11.
