--- CUSTOM ADAPTATION --- PURPOSE: Provide a custom adaptation to a standard keyboard for use by an individual with cerebral palsy. Due to the type of typing aid used by this individual, the most effective position of a keyboard needed to be at a 30 degree angle from the desk. This adaptation allows the individual to guide the typing aid directly towards the keys rather than having to bend his wrists to reach the keyboard. A clear sheet of acrylic was used to make the keyboard wedge, using a jig to heat and bent the acrylic in the right spots. The wedge has a lip on the front to keep the keyboard in position, as well as a non-slip material on the angled service to reduce the change that the keyboard will move under pressure from the typing pointer. TITLE: Accessing a keyboard. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 29, Number 1, March 2009: p. 7 PAGES: 2. (including cover).
Notes: The TAD Journal is available in the collection of the National Rehabilitation Information Center (NARIC).
