… so named by hospital staff.
An aid designed for a paraplegic,
to support a leg that is in a cast,
so that he/she can continue to use his/her own wheelchair,
while the leg heals from a break.
The block sits on the footrest, kept in place with velcro.
The block can be easily removed from the footrest
and then put back in place when needed,
thus allowing for transfer to vehicle, toilet, or bed.
For more photos and measurements of the block
see the Adaptive Aids & Clothing page.
