---- CUSTOMIZED ADAPTATION --------- PURPOSE: To create custom adapted three-piece therapy steps set for children with various disabilities to use in a therapy room at an intervention service organization. The steps needed to be wide enough for two people to walk on them side by side, and heavy enough to be stable but light enough to be moved around by two people. The design includes three separate sections, two step sections, and a one-square-meter central platform which goes in between them. The three-piece system allows for greater flexibility in how the steps are used therapeutically. Each step section has railing on both sides, and the platform section also has a railing on one side—this goes against the wall in the current corner setup, but can be placed at the front when against a straight wall. The rails are made from 38 millimeter galvanized tubing, painted with yellow enamel. The cutting, welding, and painting of all the rails was a lengthy process; however, the end result was a set of therapy steps that looked beautiful and blended in perfectly with the wooden floor of the therapy room.
