Rocking Chair for Oliver
Oliver was born with a brain tumour and the operations and chemotherapy he has undergone over the last 4 years has slowed his development meaning that he is unable to walk or crawl. He has a rocking
chair which he is able to lie in and rock himself but he is outgrowing it. The problem was to find a chair which would hold him in reclined position, and allow him to rock himself by swinging his legs.
A Childs POANG CHAIR was obtained from IKEA and fitted with rockers made from 18 mm. ply, which could be adjusted so the chair could be used in a reclining position to start with, and moved in increments to a sitting position as Oliver gained strength and control.
