An adult scooter was required that had rear stabilisers
This is a modification to the Homecraft Rolyan Pick-Up Reacher.
The problem with the standard grabber is that it only pinches the sides of an object if you pick it up from lying down. The modification with wider jaws and a design that curves round means that it can get underneath the object to ‘scoop’ it… making it easier to pick up (and also maintain hold with a weaker grip).
Our client cannot see and cannot operate the soft touch buttons on the hand controller supplied with a top end recliner chair. I made a holder for the controller that fixes it to the side of the chair and has four large and differently shaped buttons so they can be identified by touch.
This is a handle which is designed to clip onto a BT 4600 DECT Phone to aid grip. It is for those with weaker hands and/or limited mobility, and means that if grip is lost, the phone remains in the hand rather than dropping.

A day centre wanted a Giant Scrabble board that could be used by members of all abilities.
The board was 1.5m square and was constructed with a metal sandwich so that magnetic tiles would stick to it, this was mounted on a wall.
Each tile was 85mm square, has raised, tactile, characters and with a handle that can be gripped using a grabber.
The tiles and positioning corners were 3D printed.

The client uses a turning disc when transfering from his wheelchair. Normally, this would be mounted on the floor and the wheelchair footrests moved out of the way. The wheelchair footrests are fixed, so a de-mountable method of fixing the turning disc to the wheelchair is required.
