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.
The Client wears a positive air pressure mask at all times. This makes it difficult for people to hear what she says.
Client has a lightweight wheelchair with narrow wheels that are uncomfortable over uneven terrain, such as cobbles. We were asked to fit bigger wheels to make pushing the chair easier and its occupant more comfortable.
Remap were contacted by an Occupational Therapist in Salford, whose client used their shower chair to move about at home due to its smaller size in comparison to his wheelchair. The shower chair however has no headrest fitted, which was a particular problem during seizures.
The client’s visual impairment means that he is very suseptible to bright light. The design of his wheelchair means that the usual parasols do not work. A custom tubular steel canopy gives the necessary shade.
The client has a very small cramped room. To create more storage space, he raised his bed on video cassette boxes. Extensions were made to his bed legs to give a safe increase in height not possible with commercial raisers.
A client needed a conversion to her walker for single handed uae.

An adult scooter was required that had rear stabilisers

An electric grabber to replace a “Helping Hand” device for a client with weak hands
The client’s Occupational Therapist has requested a slide, to enable the child to remove himself from the wheelchair – and have fun doing so. The slide will also help to improve the child’s strength, as he will pull himself back up the slide to get back into his wheelchair.
The client needed arm support when seated. A standard dining chair was converted with a table rest.
This is a modification to the Homecraft Rolyan Pick-Up Reacher.
The problem with the standard grabber is that it only pinches the sides of an object if you pick it up from lying down. The modification with wider jaws and a design that curves round means that it can get underneath the object to ‘scoop’ it… making it easier to pick up (and also maintain hold with a weaker grip).
