The challenge

Client confined to wheelchair could not reach the window catches in his new purpose built apartment.  Remap Essexnorth made a window opener that enabled the client to open left or right hand window from his wheelchair.

Aluminium tube that fits over window handle is lined with bicycle inner tube kept in place by cable ties at each end. Easy twisting is achieved by using part of a “T” handled walking stick.
