DO IT YOURSELF PURPOSE: To enable an individual with low vision and cerebral palsy to independently carry a lunch tray in a school lunch room. The cart was constructed of PVC pipe and featured a top shelf with a rim for carrying the tray. The cart was equipped with small rubber wheels for mobility and a push bar. Plastic cabinet handles were added to the front and sides of the top shelf to enable the user to lift the cart over bumps and door sills. A second shelf below the tray shelf accommodates the student's books and purse.The shelves were painted different colors for contrast and the cart was marked with the student's name. DIMENSIONS: The tray shelf was 14 x 16 inches, one inch larger than the lunch tray, and the rim was one inch high. The PVC pipe was 1.5 inches in diameter.
