The Inclusion Table FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions
Before I started planning the Inclusion Table, I saw a need with my patients as they struggled to socialize and be included. Often, their large wheelchairs would not fit up to a regular dining table or desk. It was frustrating to not have a real solution for my patients – so I resolved to fix the problem.
After 13 years, I finalized my table design in 2018 and received my patent for the official Inclusion Table in 2021.

Right click for up and down adjustments and left click for in and out adjustments. It is so easy to use- that the adjustments can be made in a matter of seconds.
It is called The Inclusion Table because the table allows all persons seated in large wheelchairs to be “included” while dining or doing other activities with family or friends who may not need the table sections adjusted. All individuals can sit at the same table without leaving some individuals uncomfortable or unable to join in what is going on at the table. Everyone can be included.

The pediatric version will be smaller in size and have an easel that can be placed up and down at the center of each table section for placement of books or art work. This is especially useful for children that need assistance holding and viewing books easily and who have difficulty reaching further areas.
