Tetra Society Portable Wheelchair-Accessible Table
the environment when I moved in for me
wasn’t accessible everyone’s need is
different for my need in the space that
was spread out I needed to cut down on
the time while carrying one thing at a
time on my lap and then unloading at all
because it was exhausting well Patty’s
requirements were pretty straightforward
she needed a lap table that could be
adjusted for use with her power chair
and her manual chair and had to go down
low enough to go underneath her red
kitchen counter basically it’s some
designed to be easy rolling table
because of limited strength that I have
and the other thing because of the
different places I need to take it to
different heights Ron designed the top
so I all I did was turn it in order to
raise it up and down the lead screw was
actually from an old table saw that I
jumped but I remembered it when I was
trying to find a mechanism that would
work with her limited hand dexterity and
even if she could only bump it she could
move it a bit at a time and it didn’t
involve any pushing items or lifting the
table itself the other thing he took the
crossbar off the front because it was an
eight shape to make it a T the T shaped
face allows it to get in really close to
the fridge it’s almost practically in
the fridge and I can get it closer to me
when I’m using it to entertain guests or
for food prep and then putting it on the
table when I’m ready to eat or it does
have a little mechanism on it where I
can tilt it and that tilt allows me to
have my laptop or book i call it my

everything for my specific need to make
my day easier more functional less

Wheelchair Tray Review
A wheelchair tray is essentially a flat piece of furniture which can be attached to a wheelchair or on the side of a hospital bed or mobility aid chair. Most trays use a screw-and-fold system, which is usually fitted to standard plastic wheelchair trays. However, you should take note that a number of companies now produce trays which are made entirely from metal, which are strong enough to hold wheelchair wheels and provide the necessary support.
Before you buy a wheelchair tray, you need to know where and how to buy one. The Internet can be a great place to get information on trays, but there are also many local stores that sell them. Make sure you choose a store which offers a good return policy so you can return a damaged wheelchair tray. This will ensure that your investment is covered in case it turns out to be a non-functional product.
There are also several accessories available for wheelchair trays which can give your wheelchair a more sophisticated look. If you do not want to spend extra on these extras, you can purchase the standard metal ones which are designed to look like any other piece of furniture.
A few years back, wheelchair trays were made out of metal, which was extremely heavy. Nowadays, though, manufacturers are producing wheel chair trays which are lightweight and made out of aluminum. They are less expensive than those which were made from metal, but they are also less durable, so you might need to replace them sooner. However, even these lightweight wheel chair trays are still able to provide the required support so that your wheelchair can remain usable for a longer period of time.
When shopping for wheelchair trays, you should consider the type of wheelchair you have and if you have any special needs such as a wheelchair lift. Wheelchair trays which are designed with a wheelchair lift feature can make a significant difference when you are traveling in a wheelchair. This feature allows you to lift the wheelchair up and down while you are traveling in order to move along with your wheelchair.
When choosing a wheelchair tray, you should also consider whether it is designed for an electric or a gas-powered wheelchair. In general, a gas-powered wheelchair tray is much heavier and stronger than an electric one, but both can work well if you have an electric wheelchair lift installed.
