Behold the Lolo - An adaptive Guitar for Stroke Survivors

BeholdtheLoloWebsite.png

The Lolo is an adaptive instrument built for folks that suffer from a wide range of disabilities that result in a loss of dexterity from their hands and arms.  It was originally designed for my grandfather who suffered a number of strokes and could no longer hold his guitar, let alone form the chords while strumming.  I became determined to build an acoustic guitar that he could use from his wheelchair and maybe... Just maybe begin to increase the function of his arm and hand.  Unfortunately he passed away before I completed the guitar. Please... Go here to read the full story and see pictures of the build. While you're there, say "Hi" to my grandfather.  We called him Lolo.  www.beholdthelolo.simplesite.com
