CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To enable an individual with quadriplegia to take photographs. The holder is made from 19 millimeter chrome-plated steel curtain rods and clamps to the wheelchair footplate strut. It has a horizontal arm which passes from the footplate strut under the user's right leg and a vertical arm that comes up on the user's right side. The arm is long enough to put the camera at eye level. The camera is mounted on a horizontal arm that pivots from the vertical arm. The mounting is made from brass equal angle and screws into the recess in the base of the camera normally used for a tripod. The mounting is arranged to give a friction-retarded rotation in three planes at right angles to each other. This enables the user to take vertical or horizontal shots and to pivot the camera to point upwards or downward. DIMENSIONS: The brass angle is 25 x 3 millimeters.TITLE: Wheelchair Fishing and Photography. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Vol 21 no 4, Summer 2001: p.14-15. PAGES (including cover): 3 2001.
