Everyday life

 

Air Mask Microphone

The Client wears a positive air pressure mask at all times. This makes it difficult for people to hear what she says.

Bed Controller Modification

The client is mostly paralysed from the neck down except that he can move one arm but has minimal grip. The only way he could press the buttons on the hand held bed controller was to bite the buttons with his teeth.

Wheelchair Turntable

A man who had a stroke now uses an attendant propelled wheelchair. The access/egress from the house in which he resided was difficult with a need to negotiate a right angle bend in a very confined location. An infill next to a step provided a level access and incorporated a turntable on which the chair could be rotated to the new direction.

Replacements for amputated hands

The lady had suffered from sepsis and, as a consequence, had lost both hands and both feet. The NHS were able to provide a wheelchair and later prosthetic legs but had little to offer in the short term anything to provide hand functions. We were able to provide basic implements to enable her to feed hersel, sbrush her hair, and to write birthday cards and sign cheques.

Accessible Bedside Cabinet

The client, who was bed-bound for certain periods of the day, required access to a multiplicity of items that he was unable to reach from his existing bedside cabinet

Wheelchair tray

The client required a light weight tray for her wheelchair for use when out and about.

Audible target for blind child

A blind child requires a target that he can practice throwing a ball at, to develop his ability to identify the direction and distance of sounds in everyday life. The target emits a continuous sound so that the child can determine its location and a separate sound when he successfully hits it with a thrown ball. The target can be attached to any suitable place, including a football net, cricket stumps, etc.

Cigarette lighter

Client was a quadriplegic with a small amount of movement in one hand. He smoked “roll-up” cigarettes that needed frequent lighting.

I will recreate another indoor swing asap and include better videos and photos soon.

Christmas wrapping station

We wanted to make wrapping Christmas present easier and find a way to do this reducing the use of scissors and sitting down.

Walker forearm supports

Margaret is blind and has a “combination trolley walker” on which she keeps the things she needs on a daily basis to hand, but it had conventional rollator handles that didn’t provide the level of support and stability she needed
