Easel that makes it possible to paint with mouth – suitable for persons with extensive disabilities
Two holders sit on the wheelchair. A stepless tilting metal sheet is mounted on the holder. The metal sheet is tilted upward. The metal sheet has an edge. The painting box is placed on the metal sheet and the edge prevents it from sliding off. The canvas is attached with strong refrigerator magnets.
A brush holder is mounted to the lower edge of the stand. When she paints with watercolors she places the glass of water on the wheelchair armrest.
Nina enjoys painting pictures. She started doing this after her injury.
The holders are also used for other wheelchair tables, see associated tip.
