A client with Down’s Syndrome has folding three-quarter length safety rails on the side of his bed. He is unable to lower the rails himself when he wishes to get out of bed, so Remap provided new folding rails approximately half the length of the bed allowing him to exit the bed more safely.

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.

Remap engineer Jon Leigh needed to create a way of safely and comfortably separating our client from the front passenger and driver.
