Imagine trying to prepare a meal, even something simple like a bowl of cereal, from a seated position.
If you were in a wheelchair would you be able to reach a cereal bowl, or the cereal.
Most everyday dishes are kept in the upper cabinets, which are out of reach to someone in a wheelchair, or hard to reach for someone with any mobility limitations.
Anyone should be able to prepare a hot meal for themselves, but most stovetops are not safe or accessible for someone in a wheelchair.
To complete the usable workspace in the kitchen, you can also add a Height Adjustable Sink Lift. A standard kitchen sink can be difficult to use for someone in a wheelchair, if the faucet is mounted at the back, and if the sinks a very deep.
