Increase footrest height

The footrests on a wheelchair were too low to use causing the user back pain.
The only way that the chair could be used is by resting feet on the carrying basket, again an uncomfortable situation.
The supplier and wheelchair manufacturers had been contacted and they had no solution.

Fishing Trolley Stool

Malcom would love to go fishing again and he has a fishing cart to carry all his gear but he needs to sit down often when he pushes it to the lake. I made him a folding seat that is easy to fold down so he can rest at regular intervals.

TRIKE

The trike is a homemade piece of mobility equipment made from two bikes with a platform inbetween and a loading ramp. This allows someone that is disabled to experience the joys of cycling whilst still being in the wheelchair for maximum comfort with their favourite person doing the pedalling. If you happen to stop along the way at say a garden centre, then you still have the wheelchair with you for regular activities !

Wheelchair cup holder

Tracy needs a cupholder that clips onto the front of her wheelchair armrest, not on the side where it gets broken. A simple bracket was made that slips into the front of the armrest using the same fixing as her table.

Giant Scrabble Board

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.

Bow stand for one handed archery project

North Lincolnshire council run activity sessions at various “wellbeing hubs” around the county. One of the activities is archery and although they had a bow stand made by Remap some years ago for wheelchair use they asked for another one suitable for use both in a chair and standing.

Wheelchair Trolley

The client’s two children are both wheelchair users and to improve the family’s freedom during a trip to the USA (as well as at home), a modification was needed to allow both children to be pushed by a single parent.

Tray rollator arm supports

Margaret is blind and has a “combination trolley walker” on which she keeps the things she needs on a daily basis to hand, but it had conventional rollator handles that didn’t provide the level of support and stability she needed when walking around the house.

Servo assisted sailing

Remap are regular attenders at the RYA Sailability Conference. This project is one of their members projects, but referencing here provides useful archive material for a very typical Remap area of work.

Passenger Trailer for Tricycle

The West Midlands Panel was approached to see if there was a way to adapt a proprietary tricycle such that a teenage boy could use it in a safe and controlled way outdoors in a large local park. An add-on trailer was devised on which a parent could ride and control the speed at which their son could travel.

Car Wheel Changing Teaching Aid

A Derby school, which specialises in students having special needs, finds that their students are more comfortable with practical rather than academic subjects. Basic car maintenance is one course on offer and, at the request of the school, the Derby Remap panel made a classroom teaching aid to enable students to be taught how to safely remove and refit a car wheel.

Trolley for Oxygen Generator

Client used oxygen on a regular basis and preferred to use an oxygen generator rather than the gas bottles as this would allow  client to go on holiday by plane without the cost of the airline supplying oxygen.  Client was unable to carry the generator very far as it was too heavy. A small trolley […]
