4 Steps
0 I Made It!

Patients with orthopedic surgery may not be able to use their recliners without breaking precautions. As an occupational therapist, I used flexible gear tie to securely fit a piece of PVC pipe over the lever to extend it and the patient can now use the recliner.


Wrap flexible gear tie around the recliner lever to build up the diameter of the recliner lever


Push a piece of PVC pipe onto the recliner lever over the gear tie


To use recliner without bending over or to the side, pull the extended PVC pipe which will recline the chair
