DO IT YOURSELF ENTRYPURPOSE: To enable individuals with neurological, mobility or balance disabilities to work at a parts fabrication workbench that could not be modified. For individuals with balance and neurological disabilities, standing or sitting on high stools to perform production work is often not an option. To create this adaptation, a commercially available industrial work chair was purchased off-the-shelf and modified. The chair had sufficient height adjustment , but to adjust the height after sitting in the chair, the user was required to lean forward and partially support his weight while gas springs elevated the seat. In the absence of the ability to lean and support weight, it was necessary to adapt the mechanism by adding pneumatic assist cylinders to boost the action of the chair until the gas springs were fully extended. In addition, a small air cylinder was added to actuate the hand lever for the height adjustment. SKILLS REQUIRED: Fabrication and assembly. TITLE: Modeified Work Chair for Parts Fabricator.
