--- CUSTOM ADAPTATION --- PURPOSE: To provide a means for an individual with cerebral palsy to work on resin models. Because of reduced motor skills and strength in his right hand, the user required a means holding cast resin model pieces in place while he combined or painted them using his stronger hand. A custom stand was created with a heavy steel base containing holes for two vertical steel posts which clamp into place. Each post is equipped with a clamp holder at the top. A number of clamps were purchased, including small g-clamps and two types of spring-loaded clamps, which were then modified to fit in the clamp holder. One post can be used for a model currently being worked on while the other holds a model that is drying. TITLE: Making Models. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 27, Number 4, January 2008: p. 6-7.
