Wheelchair slide

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.

Car passenger protection

Remap engineer Jon Leigh needed to create a way of safely and comfortably separating our client from the front passenger and driver.

Head probe for e-reader

Client is a wheelchair user with almost no movement in his arms and hands. He can move his body backwards and forwards and had explained how much he had previously enjoyed reading from a tablet. Remap engineer Jim Rodgers developed a solution to enable our client to use his tablet again and regain some independence.

Head rest on shower chair

Makeability were contacted by an Occupational Therapist in Salford, whose client used their shower chair to move about at home due to its smaller size in comparison to his wheelchair. The shower chair however has no headrest fitted, which was a particular problem during seizures.

Bolton sailing club wheelchair jetties

Bolton Sailing club is a Sailability centre, which offers sailing for disabled people. Previously, disabled sailors were lifted into their boats on a shore mounted crane, which involved pulling the boat ashore and relaunching with every changeover of sailor.

Remap worked with Jaguar LandRover apprentices to develop a solution.
