Removing an outer jacket

Technology to take off an outer jacket - suitable for a person with severe disabilities

Description
The user has a modified jacket that enables him to take it off independently (see associated tip). He opens the zipper (see associated tip). Then he drives up to a door handle and raises the wheelchair so he can hang in the key ring that is attached to the cuffs of the jacket. Next he backs up and pulls his arm out of the jacket sleeve and then unhooks the sleeve from of the door handle. Then he attaches the key ring on the other sleeve and repeats the process.

Authors comments
To facilitate removing the jacket independently, it is important that it is not too tight under the arms and that it has a lining in a slippery fabric (like nylon).

Idea
The user along with occupational therapist Jan Lindblad
