Yes, just asking for "low tech" inexpensive solutions is a broad
question, but didn't want to limit what ideas people might offer.
Some examples that have come up in the past are using a car oil filter
wrench to open jars, or putting 2 x 4s under desk legs to accommodate
someone who uses a wheelchair, or laying a computer monitor on its side
and mounting the keyboard on a vertical piece of wood so the user who
must lie on his side can more easily view the screen and type.
When people have special needs, it is common for someone to think it
might cost too much to get something that will help. So, let's set a
$500 limit on these "low tech success stories." Looking forward to
hearing your ideas.
