--- CUSTOM ADAPTATION --- PURPOSE: To enable an individual with short stature and paralysis of the legs to access counters and the stovetop for cooking. Because the user lacked mobility, she had used a standard kitchen stool fitted with casters, but that proved unsafe. A custom stool was created with a frame of welded rectangular hollow steel. The stool was equipped with an electrolinear actuator that raises and lowers the seat. The actuator is an electric motor with a worm reducer that drives a vertical screw. The screw has a nut on it, which is connected to the seat. As the screw rotates, the nut and the seat travel up and down. The padded seat is equipped with a back support and is covered in vinyl. A toggle switch on the side of the seat raises the seat to counter height or lowers it for transfers and access to lower cupboards. DIMENSIONS: The steel sections of the frame are 75 x 50 millimeters. The seat elevates up to 680 millimeters and lowers to 370 millimeters. COLOR: The vinyl covering the seat is blue. TITLE: Elevating Kitchen Stool. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 25, Number 1, Autumn 2005. PAGES: 18-19. Number of pages: 3 (including cover).
