WATER HEATER ADAPTATION
The client's OT asked if we could modify a kettle pourer to assist the client in
preparing a late night drink. Looking at the client's disability and the unstable nature of the kettle pourers we looked for
an alternative solution.
The client did have a water heater but because of her disability was unable to grip the cup to place in onto
Her carer would leave a cup on a trolley ready for adding the hot water to make the drink. The solution was
to connect the outlet of the heater to a position above the cup. The plastic tubing used is normally kept pushed back against the
kitchen top and is swung over the cup on the trolley when required to make the drink.
