Treadmill child safety rails #3

Rose has cerebral palsy and needs to exercise daily. She has a treadmill available but it is for adults, so the existing hand rails are too high for her since she is only 7 years old. The risk of not being able to hold on to steady herself is too great and there is also a danger of her stepping on the non moving part of the machine in front of her. This make (JLL) is very popular for this purpose since it ca run as slowly as 0.3 km/hr but it is not designed for children. The challenge was to make it safe and suitable for her to use.

Alternative to sofa raising

Lynne has poor strength in her lower body and finds getting on and off her sofa almost impossible. She thought the answer might be to raise the sofa, as we have done so many times before. But the sofa was a huge corner affair that would have been almost impossible to do either safely or practically. So another solution was required. We tried other products on the market but nothing worked. So a new device was required.

Treadmill child safety rails #2

Henry has cerebral palsy and needs to exercise as part of his endurance training. He has a JLL treadmill which is popular for this purpose as it can go as slowly as 0.3 Km/Hr which is safe for children like Henry. However, he needs to steady himself and make sure he doesn’t step on the non moving part of the treadmill which could cause him to trip. As he is only 3 the safety rails need to be at the correct height and this is a lot lower than the ones that come with the treadmill.

Hands Up Alternative

A nine year old girl with cerebral palsy wanted to be able to attract her teacher’s attention like all the other pupils did by raising their hands. It needed to be visible to allow the teacher to see, but not disruptive to the class. It also needed to be easily detachable when not required. What was created was a cantilevered light […]
