DURHAM - The huge Carly Fiorina signs along New Hampshire's Route 4 weren't enough to keep her campaign alive past Tuesday's presidential primary, but they could end up helping people with disabilities live their lives more independently.
University of New Hampshire professor Therese Willkomm collects discarded campaign signs for her occupational therapy students, who've used the corrugated plastic to make thinks like iPad stands and clips that can hold a sandwich for someone who can't use his arms. The items are cheap, durable and light-weight. And if someone doesn't like the candidate depicted on the recycled sign, the items are easy to decorate with colorful foam sheets.
On Thursday, students constructed dozens of iPad stands and a wheelchair-mounted cellphone holder for a young woman who has limited mobility due to cerebral palsy.
