CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To provide a means for an individual with severe phyical disabilities to access canvasas of various sizes for painting. Made of square steel tubing, the frame is designed to enable the user to access any part of a large painting from one position. The frame is equipped with a central board on which the painting is mounted with brackets at the bottom to hold the painting and a bracket at the top that adjusts up and down in a slot on the board using a knurled nut. The board can be moved forward and away from the user, up or down, or sideways using a six-button, 27-megaHertz (mHz) remote. Movements are powered by direct current (DC) motors with 10:1 gearboxes for smooth movements. The gearboxes are connected to screwed shafts using flexible drives and the flexible drives are connected to the shafts using chain drives. Limit switches shut off the motors when the easel reaches the end of available travel. Swivel casters on the base allow the easel to be moved and a locking position keeps the frame in position during use. A heavy counterweight at the rear of the base prevents tipping. POWER: Uses two 24-volt sealed led acid batteries and an automatic charger. TITLE: Large Easel. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 24, Number 4, Summer 2004: P. 18-19. PAGES: 3 (including cover).
