Wheelchairs/powerchairs and scooters

 

Rascal Rio power chair tray

A bespoke tray to fit to a Rascal Rio indoor wheelchair and assist the client with moving meals from her kitchen. The project also required a change to the programming of the chair speed controller to make it more suitable for the tight turns in the house – and this was undertaken by a dealer.

Relocated Wheelchair Hand Control

Client with very little mobility, only movement in one hand and in his head, could no longer reach the electric wheelchair hand control on the side of his chair. Remap made a frame to relocate the hand control to his center so that he could reach it, the frame also carried a support for his tablet which was his only way to communicate.

Lifting Cot for Wheelchair user Mum

A powered variable height cot was made for a wheelchair using recent mother. The cot allowed her to bring her baby up to a height where she could change and care for him, and then lower to the floor to form a safe playpen

Wheelchair Step

Bespoke non-slip step, made to fit between front wheels of a child’s electric wheelchair, enabling safe and independent transfers in and out of the wheelchair.

Wheelchair comfy footrest

The client finds the hard plastic footrests of her Triton 2 specialist chair too hard for her bare feet. A padded foot rest was added to provide the necessary comfort.

Wheelchair shooting table

The client is a potential Para-olympic shooter and wheelchair bound. He needed an easily dis-mountable table attached to his chair which supports his elbows and the rifle. A table was designed which fitted to he chair side rails.

Paternoster storage system

An open front revolving storage system. This system allows access to storage baskets at wheel chair or other necessary heights without the user needing to lift or bend or reach. In this case it is designed to hold art and craft materials of various nature in different baskets. The user can then easily retrieve and replace required items in the appropriate basket before turning the handle to bring the next basket into an accessible position. Paternoster storage device.

Wheelchair Rocking Table

The West Midlands Panel of Remap was approached by a local academy that caters for many children who are wheelchair users and severely disabled. A member of staff who was an Occupational Therapist had identified a product made in the United States which was felt would be of benefit to the children at the school. The problems were the cost of the product, the shipping costs, and the fact that the product was not available in the U.K.

The product provided a rocking table on which a wheelchair could sit. Movements by the wheelchair use would then cause the table to rock back and forth in the same manner as a rocking horse.

Finger Support for independent Wheelchair operation

The client has a degenerative nerve/muscular condition and needs to continue to be able to operate his wheelchair independently. A finger support was developed and fitted to the wheelchair control knob to enable him to do this.

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.

Drum Stool Removable Backrest

Professional drummer with MND needed a droppable backrest so that he could get onto his drum kit stool independently, so he can play at his leisure.

Wheelchair rain cover

The manufacturer of a specialist buggy does not offer a raincover. A bespoke support frame was made to support a commercially available universal buggy rain hood to provide the needed weather protection.

Child seat for junior wheelchair

A child uses an Invacare Action 3 Junior wheelchair and now that a new sibling has arrived, her mother would like to take them both out together. An adapter was made to allow the seat of the baby’s standard buggy to be fitted to the wheelchair.
