Ben Practices Drawing

Nurse Vickie got out an older piece of therapy equipment designed specifically for Ben. Scott Ray, the gentleman who has helped us with most of our equipment purchases and fitting Ben into the them came up with this idea after seeing Ben in occupational therapy. Basically he attached some stabilizer bars to one of his chairs. Ben's arms are then suspended by flexible bands. Essentially his arms become "weightless" so that he doesn't have to fight against gravity.
