Description
A wood rod is attached to the camera’s regular handle (loop). The rod is used as a mouth stick for the trigger (photo 1). The camera sits on a stand with a metal loop (photo 3). The regular stand attachment is used. The camera can be placed on the user’s adjustable “third hand” (see tip “stand – the user’s ‘third hand’”) and is attached with a screw. The camera is stored in a holder on the chest of drawers in the living room (photo 4).

Users comments
Because the camera has a metal loop and is stored in an easily accessible holder, the user can get it himself and place it on his “third hand.” The “third hand” is connected to the adjustable leg support on the electric wheelchair and can be moved back and forth with the wheelchair motor, allowing the user to move the camera back and forth to the desired position.
