--- CUSTOM ADAPTATION --- PURPOSE: To enable an individual with Down Syndrome to operate a riveter. The concertina-style riveter was held with one hand while steadying a sign to be riveted. A stand was built to bear the weight of the riveter while holding it upright, The stand has a square steel base covered in thick plywood on which the sign to be riveted rests. An L-shaped steel is fastened to the base. The riveter is suspended form the top of the L on multi-strand stainless steel cable, with counterweights inside the vertical section, which help pull the riveter back up once the rivet is in place. Because the cable that holds the riveter on the stand is attached to the normal handgrip area, the user had to put her hand through the finger area and grip the next section. To protect the fingers from the mechanism, a U-shaped guard was added. The stand was then painted and personalized with the name of the organization. COLOR: Blue. TITLE: Riveting Work. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 27, Number 1, May 2007: p. 10-11. PAGES: 3 (including cover).
