Breakfast cart

Using the breakfast cart the user (who operates a wheelchair and has impaired hand function) can treat his wife to breakfast in bed

Description
The breakfast cart is a specially designed storage unit on casters with two shelves. Below the upper shelf is a pull-out board and under it, a round rotating board sits on a slide-out arm that can be a night table or reading table (you can add a plate as a book support) or a breakfast table. The lower shelf has a wood box that opens with two lids, one that opens downward and one that opens upward. The box contains a toaster and an extra electrical outlet. Another box that stands on the storage unit (not in the photo) has room for butter, cheese, marmalade and a small ice pack. Inside the upper lid is a cheese slicer, butter knife and a spoon. On top of the storage unit is a coffee-maker operated by a timer or remote control unit. The user loads the cart in the evening before going to bed.

Authors comments
It took time to hit on this solution. When he isn’t treating his wife to breakfast in bed, he uses the breakfast cart as a TV table. At first the coffee-maker started with a timer. The user replaced it with a remote control unit in order to be able to control exactly when the coffee is ready. He keeps the remote control unit by his bed.
