CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To provide a footrest on a scooter for an individual with severe arthritis. Because the individual was unable to bend his legs, he could not use the existing scooter floor/footrest. Instead, he rested his feet on the mudguards. However, this posed a problem when traveling downhill; because the rider could not brace himself, he would slide forward. To solve the problem, a new footrest was constructed of square metal tubing and attached to the front of the scooter, enabling the rider to brace himself with his legs straight. The footrest was designed in such a way as to accommodate one leg being four inches shorter than the other. TITLE: Retirement Projects. JOURNAL: TAD Journal.
