An electric grabber to replace a “Helping Hand” device for a client with weak hands
The Client has Parkinson’s disease, with a right hand tremor and very weak left hand. He needed some device which would make it easier to do up the zip on his jacket and other items of clothing fitted with zips.
The client’s Occupational Therapist has requested a slide, to enable the child to remove himself from the wheelchair – and have fun doing so. The slide will also help to improve the child’s strength, as he will pull himself back up the slide to get back into his wheelchair.
The client needed arm support when seated. A standard dining chair was converted with a table rest.
This is a modification to the Homecraft Rolyan Pick-Up Reacher.
The problem with the standard grabber is that it only pinches the sides of an object if you pick it up from lying down. The modification with wider jaws and a design that curves round means that it can get underneath the object to ‘scoop’ it… making it easier to pick up (and also maintain hold with a weaker grip).
A bespoke mount to attach an Otto Bock channel forearm pad to a Freedom Chair A08.
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.
