The client lives alone in a bungalow and is having problems getting her meals from the kitchen to the lounge. The OT and client had tried a smaller metal tray and was asking for handles to be fitted to the tray.
An adult scooter was required that had rear stabilisers
This is a portable, lightweight, foldable able half step which helps the client to climb stairs at any location
The client wishes to use her toilet (with integral wash and dry function) without transferring from her wheeled commode, but the wash water escapes through the gap between toilet and commode, and the toilet does not detect the presense of the client when seated (because of her raised seating position). An insert was created that closes the gap and ensures the toilet detects the client’s presence.
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.

The client struggles to get up from a wheeled garden seat when gardening. The handles on the seat are too low and the seat moves sideways when getting up. A pair of free-standing handles provide the required height and their bases act a brakes on the seat.
The client found that his wet hands slipped on the floor-to-ceiling poles in his bathroom. Both poles were fitted with paracord whipping over double sided carpet tape to provide a secure hold.
The client struggles to raise her feet when walking and so was unable to navigate her doorstep to leave the house. The standard Derby half-steps are too deep to sit on the existing doorstep and are also too high for her limited ability to raise her feet. A wooden step was made to fit the […]
Completed job Knee support The unmodified ReTurn aid The client has a ReTurn standing aid. After a stroke, her left leg has little function so when using the aid, her foot is prone to slip sideways off the platform and her knee also needs extra lateral support.
