Device to crocheting after stroke

Shared by Ana Duarte on 2016-12-14 16:15

About the solution

The therapist scavenged some wood and a bit of styrofoam. The wood was heavy enough to secure the styrofoam that would hold the needle, using glue and velcro.

“We used a stryrofoam block and we just actually used Velcro on the side and bottom to stabilize it to this wood pieces. That way it will sit on the table and give more stability to the whole thing. We also got a crochet hook and actually just put a hole through the stryrofoam, and then placed some gorilla glue in there
It didn’t take long for the patient to adapt to the device.

The patient is very happy with the solution, and is using it during the breaks from her rehabilitation.

Her therapist Angie helped her by creating a device that enables her to crochet using only one hand.
