Kitchen with many countertops - a possibility to make it easier for wheelchairusers to manage in a regular kitchen

Description
The kitchen has many pull-out cutting boards that are used to put things on. The cabinets have pull-out drawers. The kitchen does not have any knee space so it actually is not appropriate for persons who use a wheelchair.

Authors comments
A wheelchair user can access parts of the kitchen with some difficulty. A rod is used to open the kitchen cabinets (see associated tip “Customized dressing hook”) but they are resistant and difficult to open; usually the personnel have to close the cabinets afterwards. This was the existing kitchen when the user moved in.
