The Painting Easel is designed to be wheelchair accessible, portable, and adjustable with very little physical exertion. The easel has a folding wooden frame that supports an adjustable painting board, which runs on two sets of wooden "T" section tracks. The painting board moves up and down by means of a suspended counterweight, and is held in place by a 3-inch peg. PROTOTYPE DEVELOPMENT: Designed by Alan Vukusic for a wheelchair user with limited arm strength and very small reach. The base of this easel is wide enough to accommodate the wheelchair and the weighting mechanism makes the easel adjustable by the individual. DIMENSIONS: Frame is 57 x 39 x 26 inches; painting board is 30 x 37 inches with a 26-inch travel distance. Distance between the bottom of the easel and the ground is adjustable from 14 to 40 inches.
