-------- CUSTOMIZED ADAPTATION --------- PURPOSE: To create a customized bassinet modification for an individual with spinal cord injury and wheelchair user. The individual had bought a bought a bassinet with a wooden support frame which had cross members on all four sides just above the castors. These cross members meant that she wasn’t able to get her wheelchair very close to the bassinet. It wasn’t possible to completely remove the cross member on one side, as this would compromise the structure of the frame. One of the bassinet’s cross member inwards by about 100 millimeters. This small modification allows the individual to get closer to the bassinet when she is lifting her son in and out, and reduces the distance that she has to bend. This is particularly important as her son turned out to be a quite a large baby, and she was already experiencing some problems with her hands from lifting him. TITLE: Wheeling the baby.
