A young man with cerebral palsy experiences uncoordinated movements of his upper body; he would like to urinate in the home WC without missing the bowl.
A child struggled to climb the steep steps into his cabin bed. The steps were made deeper to allow him to get into bed unaided.
This is a handle which is designed to clip onto an Alcatel 1066 Mobile Phone to aid grip. There is a rigid and collapsible version of the handle available.
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.
The client, a 7 year old child, has cerebral palsy and is unable to walk, talk and has poor vision. One of his carers wanted a special folding chair to fit into a small room, which would provide the correct body support. Modifying a standard baby bouncer type chair was tried without success. A special chair was designed and made from wood.
Following on from the Giant Scrabble Board, we were asked to provide a matching Rummikub game
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.

The stainless steel tubular guard provides the necessary protection to give him the confidence to […]
The client suffers from poor hand coordination and uses a tablet PC a lot. He needed a strong support to stop shake and which could be folded away after use. A swinging arm support was constructed using aluminium tubing and “Kee Clamp” fittings. Bristol REMAP case ref. 6\13-06
The client suffers from severe paralysis and has difficulty in attracting the attention of a nurse. Bristol REMAP has designed a chin operated call switch which the client has to press 3 times in a 5 second window. This should eliminate false calls due to normal movement.
Pedals in natural positions Pedal rotated to show fixing method A 4 year old child with spina bifida has difficulty keeping her feet on the pedals of her bicycle. Commercial pedal clips are only available in adult sizes. Straps were added to the existing pedals. The metal parts provide counterweights to ensure the pedals naturally […]
Following a succession of strokes, father-of-two Andy lost the use of his right arm. Determined to cook for his family one handed, he was initially unable to prevent pans from sliding dangerously all over the cooker. We fashioned a horizontal frame to prevent sliding, attached to two perpendicular “goalpost” style restraints to stop pans rotating […]
