Commercial adaptation

 

Wheelchair joystick knob

The client’s arthritis makes it painful to grasp the small knob on her wheelchair joystick. A larger, more comfortable one was added.

Ball Thrower for dog

The Client, an MS sufferer, has an Assistance Dog to help her with everyday tasks. An essential part of the bonding process between Client and dog is the ability to reward the dog by play. In this case, throwing a ball. Unfortunately, the Client no longer has the physical ability tp perfom this simple action. Knowing that Remap had done this before, the request was made to develop a similar item based on a catapult.

Drag brakes for rollator

The client had difficulty controlling her rollator on sloping ground where it tended to run away with her because she did not have the strength to apply the brakes for extended periods. A light weight rollator with drag brakes was bought and modified to allow the drag brakes to be operated without having to bend down.

Modified Electric Toothbrush

The client has arthritis and could not press the button to switch on electric toothbrush, nor grip a manual toothbrush.

Dementia activity board

The client is a retired engineer now living in a care home. He is suffering from Alzheimer’s and keeps trying to dismantle things in the home. The care staff wanted an activity board to keep him occupied. Some are commercially available but none of them seem to match his needs.

Bed rail for profiling bed

Standard bed rails will not fit a profiling bed without interfering with the mechanism. A standard rail was adapted to allow it to be clamped directly to the mattress support frame while maintaining the bed’s functions..

Personal location tracker

The parents of a 16 year old with Down Syndrome and autism would like to give him maximum independence while ensuring his safety when he leaves the home without his carers knowing. The usual locators are unsuitable because he cannot be relied on to take one with him. A small GPS tracker was attached to his glasses (which he will always use). It sets off an alarm when he leaves home and allows his carers to locate him quickly.

Bed side rails

A client with Down’s Syndrome has folding three-quarter length safety rails on the side of his bed. He is unable to lower the rails himself when he wishes to get out of bed, so Remap provided new folding rails approximately half the length of the bed allowing him to exit the bed more safely.

Long Stick with cushioning feature

The Client was a lady, registered blind. She was finding that the shocks that occurred when she hit an obstacle with her white stick were hurting her wrists. The request was for some form of cushioning feature.

Shower Chair Headrest

A child with significant scoliosis and no head control required a headrest on her shower chair, which could be off-set to the side to support her head.

Ventilator Trolley

The 4 year old client needs a ventilator at all times and for trips outside the home, the trolley which they had been supplied with could not carry all the required equipment

Card Craft Cutting Board

A very creative lady with physical challenges makes beautiful cards as a hobby and for sale. However with her disability affects her dexterity and strength. This was making it hard to hold her work down to cut the card straight and place decorations.

I can jump waves on holiday!

Twin with Cerabral Palsy wanted to use his ‘K’ walker on their 1st seaside holiday on the sand and in the sea.
