Sleeping

 

Bed raisers

Bespoke bed raisers for a timber bed with particularly large diameter legs.

Carer Call Button

This disabled client has a live in carer and was using a standard baby alarm to call his carer during the night. Unfortunately, this also transmitted the normal sleeping sounds which was keeping the carer awake. He related this to the carer’s wife who contacted Remap to see if we could help.

Bedside light with multiple switches

This client was not happy to use his bed because he could not quickly or easily find the bedside light switch if he needed it during the night and preferred to sleep in a recliner chair.

Intravenous Pump – Alarm Monitor

A monitor for an intravenous pump audio alarm. The client needs to be alerted by a vibrating pager as she is deaf. The pump has no alarm output other than an audio signal. A system has been designed and built that can distinguish the pump alarm in relatively high ambient noise and reject other events such as knocking or tapping on the microphone sensor.

Bed lever/rail extension

The client has a profiling bed. The tallest bed lever/rail available has been fitted by the NHS. This is still not high enough. An extension piece was made to clip to the existing rail with additional stiffening.

Bed castor raisers

A steel framed bed which was lifted and converted to castors to make it easier for carers to look after the client.

One-handed bed remote control

The client has insufficient strength and movement to use the bed remote control unless it is held in exactly the correct position. A device was needed to hold the controller such that the client could reach it in the night and make adjustments using one finger.

Bed mattress lifter and call switch

The client with motor neuron disease has inadequate strength in his hands to operate his mattress elevator to allow him to get out of bed unaided, or to summon assistance. Foot operated switches were attached to the side of his bed.

Mattress Spacer

This elderly client required a spacer to fill a gap in her mattress. She had been supplied with a pressure-reducing mattress topper, which (strangely) was 6″ too long for a standard double-bed.

Bed controller access control

Client is 18 years old with learning difficulties and uses a profiling bed with a wired controller. His carers need a method to prevent him from misusing the controller.

Handrail for riser armchair

New rail Side view Rail and feet One of two feet added To suit the changing condition of the client, the arm rest used during the client’s transition from wheelchair to armchair (made under job BK2017/42C) was modified.  The electric raiser chair was too unstable for the new rail to be fixed, as the locking […]

Modified Cot Ends to allow feeding tube between the bars

Client wanted to be able to pass a child’s feeding tube through the cot ends, this allows the child to turn without getting entangled in the feed tube which is the difficulty if the tube is passed over the cot sides. A small section of the cot side top was removed and a swinging section […]

Monorail doorway closure

New upper doors closed … … and open. Pole to open and close the upper doors Client has a monorail running from the bedroom to the bathroom which means that the bedroom door does not close. The client is a noisy sleeper and this disturbs the rest of the family. Two doors were added above […]

Hinged bed rail

The client’s feet tend to slip off the side of his bed and what was needed was a small width attachment which can be pulled up 180 degrees whilst he is in the bed and then folded down 180 degrees for when he needs to get out of the bed. To complicate things there is […]
