This adaptation needs two mouthsticks made of metal, plastic or wood: one about 50 cm long with a friction tip (i.e., a dowel and and a pencil eraser), and one that separates into two 9 cm "fingers" with 1 cm projections to fit into the holes in the cassette; a cassette holder tilted at a 70-degree angle and with 3 cm spaces between each level; and thermoplastic tabs on the dials of the radio for ease in turning with the mouthstick. COMMENTS: Briefly describes adaptation involving a palmar cuff for a C-5 or C-6 quadriplegic. SKILLS REQUIRED: Woodworking. Metalworking. Plastics.
