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.
The safety screw tops found on many bottles that require the top to be squeezed before being turned, can be difficult to master by those with reduced dexterity. This solution requires a simple modification to standard slip-jaw pliers
A teacher needed a device to help blind and partially sighted children to practice their ability to locate and identify sounds.
The limited adjustment of the client’s wheelchair footsupports meant that his feet were not supported comfortably. Longer cushions were added to the footplates to provide the required support.
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.
Some people with e.g. cerebral palsy are unable to use physical controllers such as buttons and joysticks but are still able to make intentional hand movements. HandShake uses a pair of BBC Micro:bits to enable triggers to be sent to switchable communication software to enable speech to be composed. A trigger is sent to the communications device when the participant moves a hand above an adjustable threshold of acceleration.
For many high-tech assistive communication (AAC) users, it is difficult to see when they are composing a message. We implemented a system that visually indicates when communication software is being used.
The client has very limited movement in his arms and hands but can move his head accurately. He used to enjoy reading so to allow him to read independently again a device that let him control an e-reader with his head was needed.
The client requires eye drops every fifteen minutes but also suffers from severe arthritis and is unable to dispense these herself. To improve her independence and decrease the workload on her husband a device that allowed her to dispense the drops herself was needed.
A soulution to the recurring demand to mount equipment to wheelchairs including Wanzil trend babyy carrier, YEPP child bike seat and a solution for non-child carrying purposes using an offset socket which can be useful for other devices (for example a tray).
The lady had suffered from sepsis and, as a consequence, had lost both hands and both feet. The NHS were able to provide a wheelchair and later prosthetic legs but had little to offer in the short term to provide hand functions. We were able to provide basic implements to enable her to feed herself, brush her hair, and to write birthday cards and sign cheques.
The client uses a turning disc when transfering from his wheelchair. Normally, this would be mounted on the floor and the wheelchair footrests moved out of the way. The wheelchair footrests are fixed, so a de-mountable method of fixing the turning disc to the wheelchair is required.
A sixteen-year old girl with a wheelchair mounted ventilator system required a way to transport the equipment so that she could build her strength by walking.
The Client , a lady, had lost both hands and feet due to sepsis. A stairlift had been installed in her house but there were two small steps to be negotiated dor which she required assistance.
The Client wears a positive air pressure mask at all times. This makes it difficult for people to hear what she says.
A client has a progressive muscle weakness, that particularly affects hand grip, walking and balance. He is having trouble operating the brakes on his rollator (wheeled walker) and this makes him feel very unsafe.
