The client wishes to develop her daughter’s limited physical abilities by encouraging her to crawl by using the force of gravity on an inclined ramp.
After a stroke, the client struggled to file her fingernails and varnish them. A simple tool was made to allow her to do this one-handed.
An additional cross rail for an Arjo “Sara Stedy” sit-to-stand equipment, to help a client who couldn’t reach the full height rail due to the particular chair he has.
Remap was contacted by a Paediatric Physiotherapist working at the Jarvis Centre in Guildford. They were looking for adaptive sandals for a trike for one of their patients who did not need a specialist trike but his feet kept slipping off the pedal. The physiotherapist had done some preliminary online research and found a DIY solution they thought would work well – I used it as a base for the design, with some improvements.
The client needed wheelchair access to his garden where commercial ramps were unsuitable. A shallow wooden ramp was made, with adjustable height legs to allow for the uneven ground.
The client was unable to use her feet to operate the speed controller for her overlocker sewing machine so a hand operated controller was constructed
A client has problems gripping objects, especially small items. He suffers with Hereditary Motor Sensory Neuropathy (Charko Marie Tooth). This is progressive and has worsened in the last two years. He also has problems walking, needing axillary crutches.
A solution to the problem of people having limited strength to use uPVC doors, especially those that require an upward movement to engage multi-point locks.
A client with MND requires supports to hold his arms up when sitting to alleviate back pain, especially when away from home visiting friends. Floor-standing adjustable supports provide the necessary support and are dismantleable for transport.
The client suffers from severe allergies to almost everything. The lady is sensitive to the chemicals used in glue.
Connecting the battery charging pins to a HalfSun Smart Bracelet V2 is difficult due to its poor design, but was impossible for this client who has little function in his right hand. The provided peg-like clip requires precise alignment requiring dexterity. The solution was to provide an open mounting stand onto which the watch is simply placed down, providing automatic alignment and gravity providing the connection pressure.
Four-year-old boy has cerebral palsy and as part of his treatment he uses a treadmill to help strengthen his legs. He can’t reach the handrails so a lower set has been made to attach to the original rails.
Foot plates for a Molift Raiser 205 to keep the client’s feet in position for lifting from a seated position.
The client uses a MiniLift sit-to-stand aid for transfers but the sling is unsuitable. The Oxford Journey aid has a more suitable sling, but the aid itself is too large to maneuver inside the client’s home and its sling uses a 4-point fixing, and so could not be used on the MiniLift, which has a 2-point attachment. It was decided to add a bracket to the MiniLift so the Oxford Journey 4-point sling could be used.
Client with MS, in a reclining chair, likes to paint, read and do jig saws. Current over bed (or chair) tables do not meet her needs.
Remap selected a suitable table to modify, that had the ability to incline and added a rotatable side table extension, held flat even if the main table top was inclined.
A separate larger table top, covered in anti-slip material, was made to easily slip over the main table top which could be easily removed without disturbing a partially finished jig saw.
The patient could not use her recliner chair as the footrest came up and aggravated her skin.
I swapped the chair leg rest for a smaller pad made from plywood and foam to support her feet.
