Robert is passionate about his painting hobby but was finding it difficult holding his paint brushes. He has a condition called cerebellar ataxia and uses a wheelchair. Martin, a volunteer with Remap Leicestershire and Rutland, solved this problem with a short length of cycle inner tube! Robert also had a problem getting close enough to his easel from his wheelchair, so Martin crafted a pull-out support with adjustable arm rest, that could be clamped to Robert’s desk.
