Wheelchair shooting table

The client wanted a shooting table which he could use with his lightweight manual wheelchair which would enable him to do competition shooting. A standard folding workbench was modified for this purpose

Arjo Sara Stedy additional cross rail

An additional cross rail for an Arjo “Sara Stedy” sit-to-stand equipment, to help a client who couldn’t reach the full height rail due to the particular chair he has.

Powered platforms for children

MK Remap were approached by Redway School in Milton Keynes to see if we could make a powered platform to help children with physical and learning difficulties gain confidence in their mobility. Two powered platforms were made, based on donated unwanted wheelchair chassis, which would allow a child in an ‘activity chair’ to drive and control the platform using simple ‘forwards / backwards / left / right ‘ buttons

Book Manipulation Aid

The client suffers from motor neurone impairment virtually robbing her of the use of her hands and fingers. She likes to read actual books (as opposed to Kindle books) but cannot now hold or manipulate a book. This project provides a device which has given the client sufficient control of a book to be easily able to read it.

Drinking Aid

A lady with advanced Parkinson’s was often left from 20:00 until 08:00 without a drink as she was unable to get a cup or hold a straw to her lips without support so a solution was created to enable her to drink independently.

Universal extended door handles

A solution to the problem of people having limited strength to use uPVC doors, especially those that require an upward movement to engage multi-point locks.

Rising Shower Chair

The user lacks knee extensor strength. He can make standing transfers, but only from a high seat to a low seat, so that he can make the necessary turn with his knees fully extended. To enable showering in his wet-room, his shower chair needs to elevate, as his wheelchair does. We chose a hydraulic motorcycle platform lift, and installed it under the shower seat of a wheeled commode/shower chair, after removing the commode seat and
bowl.

Handlebar extension

A client asked if we could help with an extension to her handlebar on her first bike. The client liked to support her hand and required the handle bar to be smaller and closer to her body.

One-handed Brake for Mobility Scooter

Our client had lost the use of one hand. His new mobility scooter was fitted with a handbrake which required two hands to operate – one to pull on the brake and the other to operate a locking latch.
A system was engineered to allow the brake to be both operated and locked with one hand

Adapted thin and light cutlery.

Our client has difficulty with normal cutlery and wanted some which were as light as possible and with thin handles. She wanted the fork ans spoon to be angled. She had tried various commercially available products but , although some were light, these had very large handles.

Treadmill adaptation for boy with cerebral palsy

Four-year-old boy has cerebral palsy and as part of his treatment he uses a treadmill to help strengthen his legs. He can’t reach the handrails so a lower set has been made to attach to the original rails.

Stool backrest modifications

The client has sever back problems and needed a kitchen stool with custom back support. A structure was made with two additional back support pads and fixed to the existing stool frame.

Bed lever/rail extension

The client has a profiling bed. The tallest bed lever/rail available has been fitted by the NHS. This is still not high enough. An extension piece was made to clip to the existing rail with additional stiffening.
