---- CUSTOMIZED ADAPTATION --------- PURPOSE: To create a custom modification of a baby cot for a mother with multiple sclerosis to care for her baby. Due to muscle weakness in her legs from the multiple sclerosis, the individual was unable to stand up to read into a standard cot and pick up her son, even with the side at its lowest level. The individual purchases a new cot to be modified so the cot would open from the front and she could reach inside. The cot was assembled apart from one side. The remaining side was cut in half and fitted with two gates, using self-closing bar door hinges at each end and a barrel bolt in the middle. The individual only needs to open one side to reach her son, but bed-making is easier with both gates open. The adaptation is still useful as the child is now a toddler, he is able to scramble in and out his self, making sure to come down safely backwards. TITLE: Managing motherhood. JOURNAL: TAD Journal.
