Wheelchair mods

 

Wider Wheelchair Wheels

Client has a lightweight wheelchair with narrow wheels that are uncomfortable over uneven terrain, such as cobbles. We were asked to fit bigger wheels to make pushing the chair easier and its occupant more comfortable.

Head rest on shower chair

Remap were contacted by an Occupational Therapist in Salford, whose client used their shower chair to move about at home due to its smaller size in comparison to his wheelchair. The shower chair however has no headrest fitted, which was a particular problem during seizures.

Wheelchair sun & rain cover

The client’s visual impairment means that he is very suseptible to bright light. The design of his wheelchair means that the usual parasols do not work. A custom tubular steel canopy gives the necessary shade.

Dog Treat Feeder (Mk 1)

A client was a lady in a wheelchair and training a new assistance dog. She needed a method to deliver treats to the dog but unable to do so.

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.

Wheelchair slide

The client’s Occupational Therapist has requested a slide, to enable the child to remove himself from the wheelchair – and have fun doing so. The slide will also help to improve the child’s strength, as he will pull himself back up the slide to get back into his wheelchair.

Shower chair footrest

The standard footrests of John’s showerchair made it difficult to manoeuvre around the narrow doors and landing of his home. More compact custom footrests were made.

Mobility chair desk top

Add multi-purpose ‘desk top’ to child’s mobility chair so she could start school with her own table top.

Chair Headrest

The client uses a shower chair to move through his home and needed a head rest mounting on it.
