The client has a cot with an opening door. The device makes it difficult for the child to undo the latch as two actions are needed.
The client needed arm support when seated. A standard dining chair was converted with a table rest.
Our client cannot see and cannot operate the soft touch buttons on the hand controller supplied with a top end recliner chair. I made a holder for the controller that fixes it to the side of the chair and has four large and differently shaped buttons so they can be identified by touch.
This is a handle which is designed to clip onto a BT 4600 DECT Phone to aid grip. It is for those with weaker hands and/or limited mobility, and means that if grip is lost, the phone remains in the hand rather than dropping.
The trike is a homemade piece of mobility equipment made from two bikes with a platform inbetween and a loading ramp. This allows someone that is disabled to experience the joys of cycling whilst still being in the wheelchair for maximum comfort with their favourite person doing the pedalling. If you happen to stop along the way at say a garden centre, then you still have the wheelchair with you for regular activities !
Straps attached to the pedal of a PedalPower bike for users with limited mobility
The client required a ramp for his scooter to pass though his front door directly onto the public pavement. The ramp could not be left in place and the client did not have any assistance available to fit, and later remove, the ramp. A hinged “drawbridge” ramp was made with a cord to raise and lower it.
A client with MS needed steps to access a swimming pool at a shallow angle.
A severely disabled wheelchair user needed a back rest for the toilet to allow her to continue living independently. No suitable commercial product available.
Bolton Sailing club is a Sailability centre, which offers sailing for disabled people. Previously, disabled sailors were lifted into their boats on a shore mounted crane, which involved pulling the boat ashore and relaunching with every changeover of sailor.
Remap worked with Jaguar LandRover apprentices to develop a solution.
Tracy needs a cupholder that clips onto the front of her wheelchair armrest, not on the side where it gets broken. A simple bracket was made that slips into the front of the armrest using the same fixing as her table.
A method of swimming pool transfer when abroad
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.
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.
