    I love the creativity, Betty. Fritz sounds like a man after my own heart. I've spent my life modifying things to suit my purposes, sadly no longer able to do much. I modified my lawn edging shears earlier this year so I could use them with a weakened grip, although they were only useful for a few months. Now trying to make a DIYer out of my wife.

    i suppose they go with one size fits everyone. it looks really good. i suppose somethings you just have to adapt to suit which is great if you know what you are doing.

    Hi Betty,

    I know you can adapt a power wheelchair to operate with a knee control. Speak to the wheelchair service provider.

    Lift chairs and hand controls

    Do lift chairs have any good designs for really tall people who cannot use hand controls because of weak hands, and why the heck aren’t the extensions on lift chairs considerate of guys w long legs? Any ideas on how to extend so that ankles don’t hang over? Wish we could send our wish lists to chair developer engineers! Fritz created a chair so that he could sit at the dining table and still get up. Genius! Key to it was a clam type seat lift he set on a piece of plywood on the chair seat. The base was a big porch chair. He instructed his carpender friend to attach 2 2x4 boards under legs w construction glue for height and also extended arm rests upward and outward w a 2x6 board cut to sit on existing arm rests. Works like a charm
