Description
The eraser is taped to a pen. The user holds the pen with the help of the wheelchair glove. She loosens the Velcro closure of the glove, inserts the pen between the glove and the space between thumb and index finger and tightens the glove again. To keep her balance she wraps her other arm around the backrest (photo 1).
