A women was severely injured in a car accident resulting in paralysis of her legs and right arm. Her left arm is very weak and has only limited movement.
Her fingers lack sensation and control and are of very little use to her. She operates her wheelchair joystick with the palm of her hand. She wanted to be able to return to her hobby of photography by having a digital camera mounted from the right hand arm-rest of her wheelchair and equipped so that she can operate it in some way, other than by hand. The solution involved making a rectangular housing for the camera from 16 gauge aluminium plate and equipped with circular rubber bellows. These could be expanded or contracted by blowing through narrow plastic tubing.
