Support/rest

 

Shower seat

The client had suffered a stroke and was unable to use his arm or leg on the left side of his body. His wife was unable to get him into the shower as it was too narrow for a shower chair to be manoeuvred so the client’s Occupational Therapist contacted us to ask for help.

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.

Arm supports

A client with MND requires supports to hold his arms up when sitting to alleviate back pain, especially when away from home visiting friends. Floor-standing adjustable supports provide the necessary support and are dismantleable for transport.

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.

Adjustable Wrist Support

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.

Alternate Footrest for a Recliner

The patient could not use her recliner chair as the footrest came up and aggravated her skin.
I swapped the chair leg rest for a smaller pad made from plywood and foam to support her feet.

Arm support

Client has Congenital Myasthenic Syndrome and her weak arms cause difficulty with lifting them above waist height, and so has trouble with doing makeup, hair-drying, hair straightening, etc. A simple padded wooden stand supports her elbows.

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..

Wheelchair comfy footrest

The client finds the hard plastic footrests of her Triton 2 specialist chair too hard for her bare feet. A padded foot rest was added to provide the necessary comfort.

Head support

Our client suffered from MND and a support had been made to help lift her head, but she was finding it a little difficult to move her head sideways to look at her computerised vision driven voice box or her carer.
