Relocate Feeding Tube Stand

The Occupational Therapist contacted us saying: “Somebody from Remap previously made a fantastic stand to attach this child’s overnight tube feed to his profiling bed. This attached into the existing socket on the bed-frame at the head end of the bed (please see photo). Unfortunately he has started pulling on the tubes when it is […]

Ventilator Trolley

The 4 year old client needs a ventilator at all times and for trips outside the home, the trolley which they had been supplied with could not carry all the required equipment

Special Doll

This doll was created at the request of the local Children’s Hospital after a child asked for a doll “just like Her”.

Bathroom Step

A bathroom floor needed to be levelled with a platform / step, in order to allow a child with weak limbs to access the bath.

Changing Unit

The child was too large for the existing changing unit, but the available space was very limited, and a larger unit would not fit in the available space. Extending the existing unit was the only option.

Modified Baby Cot

Mum of 7 month old baby, and full time wheelchair user, couldn’t put her baby into the cot, as it was the wrong height for her to wheel underneath, and the sides dropped down preventing her from getting near enough to get the baby in and out.

Cot Door Catch

Parents of a child who is fed intravenously needed the doors of her specialist cot to be held open whilst they were changing feed / fluid bags etc.

Commode Seat

Child receiving end of life care. OT tried a child’s commode chair but the aperture in the middle was too small. Specialist products take several months for delivery. This was too urgent to wait, so the OT asked if the standard product could be adapted.

Special School Bed Modifications

A Special School in Birmingham had three very large ‘beds’ where children with learning difficulties could be placed in safe environments with sound or visual stimulation. However the canvas side panels intended to stop the children from falling off were insecure and incomplete. Secure canvas side panels, fitted to all four sides of each ‘bed’ were needed.

Baby-proof cot latch

The client has a cot with an opening door. The device makes it difficult for the child to undo the latch as two actions are needed.

Wheelchair Trolley

The client’s two children are both wheelchair users and to improve the family’s freedom during a trip to the USA (as well as at home), a modification was needed to allow both children to be pushed by a single parent.

Mounting Baby/Child Seats To Wheelchairs

A soulution to the recurring demand to mount equipment to wheelchairs including Wanzil trend babyy carrier, YEPP child bike seat and a solution for non-child carrying purposes using an offset socket which can be useful for other devices (for example a tray).

Step-up platform

21-month-old Sebby with achondroplasia (short stature) cannot use standard steps etc to access sinks, toilets and worktops. His mother is having to hold him so that he can wash his hands, etc. and  she would like him to be able to do these things safely by himself. 0

Cot Adaptation

The client is a wheelchair user, he has a young child and wants to be able to get the child in and out of the cot from a sitting position.
