About the solution

The latter, with its playful side, is now used by Gabriel during the majority of his trips back home. It may also carry toys, making him able participate in everyday tasks with his parents.

The follow equipment was used:

a wooden chair
2 stainless steel handles
4 swivel casters (diameter 50 mm)


Sawing amounts of file just flush with the seat and keep
Assemble the chair as described in the product's instructions without setting the seat
Cut two vertical dimension to the exact record of the spacing of the chair legs and deburring and chamfering the edges sawn
Fix these two amounts to the four legs of the chair that used to weigh down the chair (lowering the center of gravity) but also stiffen the assembly
Place the four swivel wheels at the four corners of the chair
Locate and mark the location of two horizontal bars of the chair on the chair seat (these help block objects placed on the tablet) and fix them
Locate and mark the location of two stainless steel handles that allow to "close" the tablet and avoid falling objects placed on the service
Attach the shelf on feet.
