Workplace for a person with high spinal cord injury allows user to work from home

The work table consists of two table tops. An approximately 2.5 m wide board goes along the wall and sits on consoles. In the middle of the large board is a narrow board that sits on top and extends over the lower one. The hard drive stands on this section and is therefore accessible from two sides (see Photo 3 and associated tip). The narrow board is also suspended from the ceiling (see Photo 3).

The user has a Macintosh computer that he controls with an external scanning keyboard and head mouse. The headset for the head mouse is suspended from the ceiling (see associated tips).

The user has a telephone with a holder for the receiver (see associated tip).

Authors comments
It was important for the user to be able to move freely without any table legs in the way.

The user works both at the office and from home. He works for an advertising agency that designs logos and advertising on cars. The user draws on the computer, based on clients' requests (see Photo 4).
