Walking

 

Door opener for self closing doors

People in wheelchairs and with walkers find it difficult or impossible to open self closing doors such as fire doors in homes. Commercial door openers are very expensive.

Long Stick with cushioning feature

The Client was a lady, registered blind. She was finding that the shocks that occurred when she hit an obstacle with her white stick were hurting her wrists. The request was for some form of cushioning feature.

Gutter frame customisation

The client is exceptionally tall and could not find a suitable gutter frame to suit him. A special frame was made from standard components

Clear Walker Tray

Client with foot neuropathy needed a clear tray on his wheeled walker, so that he could see his feet, thus preventing tripping.

Modify Parallel Bars

Robust parallel bars for physio / exercise, made bars from stainless steel tube, so that they won’t break (as the previous wooden ones had).

Treadmill child safety rails

Conversion of an adult treadmill for a 4 year old child. The side rails provide handholds, and the front bar stops him from either tripping on the frame or knocking his head on the control panel. The frame is height adjustable to allow for growth.

Portable half step

This is a portable, lightweight, foldable able half step which helps the client to climb stairs at any location

Balcony platform and ramp

The client used to be able to access her balcony but now uses a wheeled walker and cannot negotiate the almost 5″ drop. There was insufficient room to install a straight ramp so a combination of platform and ramp was required.

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.

Tray rollator arm 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 when walking around the house.
