A long rod is screwed to a hinged attachment. The attachment has resistance so that it stops in the position in which it is placed. A padded ball sits on the rod. The user can fold the rod forward so that the ball is at stomach level. When he needs to cough he drives back and forth against it with the wheelchair and in this way gets support for coughing.
It is crucial for the user to be able to be alone in the home even when he has a cold. This assistive device makes this possible.
How to make
The manufacturer used a tube, a piece of round molding and the hinge-like holder. This holder is taken from an armrest for an adapted toilet chair.
