DO IT YOURSELF ENTRY --- PURPOSE: To enable an individual with multiple sclerosis to have the mouth piece of the mouthstick near her mouth for ready access. The holder had to be adjustable, yet not impede access into or out of the user's wheelchair. A swivel joint from a "third hand" (two alligator clips and a magnifying lens mounted on a swivel base for use in soldering and the like) was welded to a thin-walled piece of pipe that matched the outside diameter of wheelchair rail. The thin-walled pipe was long enough that a hose clamp could be used to secure it to the chair. The top end of the mouthstick was inserted into a stick holder made from a section of 2x4 and glued with epoxy. The basic shape was cut to match that of the mouthstick and the holder shape was reduced to be 0.5-inch bigger than the mouth stickshape. The holder has a piece of plastic at the end to ensure the mouth stick does not fall out while resting in the holder. Clear plastic was used so that the position of the stick could be seen. To allow the mouth stick to be easily inserted approximately 0,5-inch of vertical slack. This allows the mouthstick to be slid back and lifted out easily. TITLE: The Mouth Stick Holder.
