Threshold ramp for uPVC door

A common problem when providing wheelchair access to a uPVC door is getting over the often quite high threshold. The usual solution of a sheet aluminium bridge has to be removed to allow the door to close which is hard for a lone wheelchair user. This light weight infill strip can be removed with a standard pick-up stick.

iPad stand for AI text to speech app.

The client uses an AI app on her iPad to read documents. Unfortunately the iPad has to be held very still when capturing the image and she was struggling with this (ad so did I when I tried it out). Her OT contacted us as asked if we could make a stand to hold the iPad and an A4 sized document so that she can have it read to her.

Audio Guitar Tuner

The client plays a guitar and is also visually impaired and a friend had discovered a modified guitar tuner on the internet that had an audible indication using an Arduino micro-controller to interpret the indicators and send sequences of sounds to an earpiece, he asked us to make a similar device.

Light Switch Adaptation

A wall mounted adaptation to allow a height impaired person to operate a standard light switch from lower down, without the need for rewiring or use of “smart” lighting.

Chair Headrest

The client uses a shower chair to move through his home and needed a head rest mounting on it.

Head Probe

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.

Mounting Baby/Child Seats To Wheelchairs

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).

Tray rollator arm supports

Margaret is blind and has a “combination trolley walker” on which she keeps the things she needs on a daily basis to hand, but it had conventional rollator handles that didn’t provide the level of support and stability she needed when walking around the house.

Bed Controller Modification

The client is mostly paralysed from the neck down except that he can move one arm but has minimal grip. The only way he could press the buttons on the hand held bed controller was to bite the buttons with his teeth.

Step-up platform

21 month year old client with achondroplasia (short stature) cannot use standard steps etc to access sinks, toilets and worktops. His mother is having to hold him so that he can wash his hands, etc. and  she would like him to be able to do these things safely by himself.

Reading stand

A child with spina bifida also has difficulties with eye sight and neck pain and he struggles to look down at what he is reading. He finds it much more comfortable to look directly in front of him. He requires a stand for his tablet and his books.

Book stands

A special needs school required book stands for its pupils, but found that those from the preferred school supplier too expensive. Modifying “Brada” laptop stands from IKEA proved much more cost effective.

One-handed ponytail tie

Client is a young stroke patient who wished to tie her hair up into a pony tail using just her non-dominant left hand.

Speech communicator

Our client was having trouble communicating with those around her. Her low vision and other disabilities made talking and using equipment difficult. The solution, specially developed by Remap, was a dedicated speech communication device.

Modify sit-to-stand aid

The client’s feet are splayed and this means she cannot position herself far enough forward to safely stand on the platform of her ReTurn7400 sit-to-stand aid. The platform was modified to suit.
