Mounting bracket to attach a large switch to a wheel chair

Requested Project

A mounting bracket for a large switch that may be attached to a wheel chair.  The switch must be precisely positioned for operation by a wheel chair occupant with very limited hand and arm motion.

Design Notes

The mounting bracket is made out of angle iron cut and bent to hold the switch over the left shoulder.  The wheel chair is a custom design with mounting holes on the wheel chair frame that can be used to attach the bracket.  A circular board is attached to the bracket and the switch is attached to the board with velcro.

RCRV designer is John Wauer, and was requested by GWAEA. The project was begun May 9, 2001 and completed Jun 7, 2001.
