CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To provide a means for an individual with quadriplegia to hold and operate a digital camera. Made of steel, this mount is equipped with two foam-covered handles, one above the other. The user places the top handle in his/her palm and the bottom handle holds the hand in position, supports the back of the wrist, and can be rested on a stable surface as needed. The handles are attached to a frame that screws into the tripod mount on the bottom of the digital camera. The frame is adjustable to enable the camera to be moved from side to side or rotated vertically. The frame is also equipped with a large lever that links to the shutter via a small pivot and depresses it using a round-headed bolt. The action is magnified to enable the user to perform the two-part button depression. This has a spring-loaded retract to keep it taut and provide some feel for the movement. A similar lever operates the rocker switch that activates the camera's zoom function. The frame is padded with rubber to prevent damage to the camera, and it can be removed to enable the camera to be used without it. TITLE: Camera Holder. JOURNAL: TAD Journal.
