PURPOSE: To provide a custom adaptation of a swing seat for a child with Multicystic Leukoencephalopathy and poor motor skills. A customized swing seat was made using a Sebel Junior Hobnob seat shell. A frame for the seat was made by bending two lengths of square steel tube to form side pieces, and bracing these at the rear and underneath with two more pieces of tube. Bolted to the brace under the seat are rigid hanging members made from round steel tube, which keep the seating orientation fixed relative the hangers and provide a comfortable surface for the child to hold onto. These rise on either side of the seat where they are fixed to the original hanging cables from the swing set. The hanging members are positioned forward of the point where the seat and back join for additional stability, and the static hanging angle of the seat is slightly reclined to reduce the risk of the child tipping forward out of the seat. There are also pelvic belt and a crotch strap to keep the child in position. TITLE: A swing for Jacob. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 28, Number 4, December 2008: pp. 8-9. PAGES: 3.
