Computer accommodations aren’t just about the technology. Sometimes, people need their workstations to be adjustable to accommodate their wheelchair, their back pain, or their height. The Knox Center at 2064 Shapiro Library has a variety of options for students registered with SSD:
- Every workstation has an adjustable table that can be raised or lowered with the touch of a button. These will go high enough for most users to be able to work from a standing position, and low enough to accommodate most wheelchairs.
- An electric reclining chair in the side room, 2064A, can be tilted to a near-vertical position. A number of people with back problems have told us they like using this, particularly in conjunction with the electronic tables.
- All other chairs can be adjusted for height, backwards tilt, and armrest height.
- Two small rolling tables may serve as an armrest, or as a convenient place to put materials.
