Sarai’s Paint Brush Rig

Client: Sarai R. age: 34
Volunteers: Dick Gautraud, Bill Deimling
Project Number: 20150401
Delivery Date: June 23 2015

Project Summary

Sarai needed a solid way to hold and change paint brushes with her feet. Dick and Bill got together and created the perfect setup for her.

Request/Hurdle

Sarai really enjoys painting with her foot, and at one time she had a special brace that went over her foot that a paintbrush went in. Unfortunately she hadn’t painted in a while and the piece has been misplaced.  We have tried taping a paintbrush to her foot, and taping the project to a box that is placed on the floor under her foot.  The paintbrush falls off, and its uncomfortable. Also her project falls off the box.  Sarai has cp so she uses a wheelchair, and does not have use of her hands.  Sarai is a very kind, intelligent woman, who would love to create some works of art independently.

Client Testimonial

This goes to show that just because someone might have a disability, doesn't mean they aren't ABLE to do what everyone else can!
