--- CUSTOM ADAPTATION --- PURPOSE: To enable individuals with dementia to benefit from rocking while not risking injury if they disassemble the mechanism. The chair was constructed by attaching the upper part of a standard hospital Geri chair to a tubular steel base that moves the chair back and forth. The mechanism to move the chair was enclosed in order to prevent people from getting their feet caught in it. The seat of the chaqir is bolted to a square frame that has rods attached to the bottom. The rods link to and pivot from uprights that go into the base of the chair, allowing the square frame to tilt backwards and forward, simulating a rocking motion. The mechanism is enclosed in wooden panelling for safety. The chair is also equipped with a footrest, and a lever to lock the rocking mechanism off when the chair is unattended. TITLE: That Old Rocking Chair. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Vol. 21 no. 2, Winter 2001: p. 15. PAGES (including cover): 2.
