--- CUSTOM ADAPTATION --- PURPOSE: To enable an individual with quadriplegia to access his home telephone. An existing overbed stand was adapted using the wall-mount bracket that came with the telephone. The bracket was mounted to the stand and the phone base attached to the bracket. The base is upside down, facing the user while he is lying on the bed. Consequently, the handset could not be placed in the base when not in use or for charging. A separate metal clip was attached to the stand to hold the handset. A separate charger that can be plugged into any outlet was acquired to enable the phone to be charged when and where needed.
