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.
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.
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.
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.
Paul has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy which has left him with extremely limited movement, literally just a few fingers and his mouth and eyes.
Paul loves using his computer with a glide point mouse (touch pad). The problem is getting, and keeping, his hand in just the right position to operate the touch pad.
I provided a foam wrist support on top of an adjustable platform. It is now easy for a carer to adjust the wrist support up or down my small amounts.
The client’s arthritis makes it painful to grasp the small knob on her wheelchair joystick. A larger, more comfortable one was added.
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.
A replacement comfortable seat to replace the firm standard item on an Acorn Curve stairlift.
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.
The client has arthritis and could not press the button to switch on electric toothbrush, nor grip a manual toothbrush.
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.
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..
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.
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.
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.
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.
