--- "DO IT YOURSELF" ENTRY ------- PURPOSE: Fork and tray ensemble designed to enable a person with minimal upper extremity function to eat independently. Describes a plywood tray, with suction cups on the bottom to prevent slipping, which holds a scoop dish attached with velcro and a cutout circle for a glass; a fork with an extension allows it to swivel. The fork is fastened to the dish with a chain of rubber bands which acts to keep the fork parallel to the plate when it is in the plate and horizontal when it is moved to the mouth, compensating for supination. The extension fits into a quad utensil holder. SKILLS REQUIRED: Woodworking. Soldering. Assembly.
