This was a commissioned project from the orthopedic group for whom I work. In the practice we were unable to do standing ankles b/c the equipment was not able to go low enough so we had to raise the patient up higher. Tadaaa, this is where the step ups are handy. They have two slots on either side to hold cassettes upright (picture 1) and a handle for balance. These things are perfectly flat and and sturdy as can be thanks to 2×4 cross bracing in numerous places underneath the platform and step. I installed wheels on the handle side so the box can be easily rolled away. The handle was found to be unsteady made from wood so I replaced them with 1 1/2” square steel and bolted in place. (not pictured) It was a call I should have made first but live and learn. The OSOI emblem on the side was from a custom cut stencil I made (first one). Took me a while to pounce the image in place but I think it came out great. Enjoy!!!!
