Access steps for Shower Cubicle
Case ref 11/09 (15)
Client was unable to raise his feet more than 3" so was unable to access his shower cubicle because of its high door thresh Our REMAP engineer was therefore approached for help. The solution is was the manufacture and provision of the steps shown. In recognition of the humid conditions the steps were constructed from marine plywood and varnished.
Whist the right hand of the shower door frame was substantial this was not the situation for the left. A support pole was therefore included on the left hand side of the steps.
The device shown is the third of the development of aid. Placement and removal of the steps was arranged to be performed by Client's wife
Wheel Chair Leg Support
Case refs 099/74, 02/22 and 02/23 (96)
As can be seen from the above this referral has been the subject of three cases , the first in 1999 was to support the left leg. And following which a support for the right leg was provided. The third modification was to provide more comfort when conformable padding was incorporated inside the base of the cups. It is to be noted that all of our work was performed under the guidance of Client's Physio Therapist.
Details of the device are shown as attached from which one will note that protection was added to the top edges of the cups to prevent chafing of the legs.
A further set of supports was made for Client's electric wheel chair under case ref 02/25. See the leg supports shown on page 5 of this gallery
Foot Support for Motorised Pedal Excerciser
Case ref 02/20
This device was similar to that of case 10/02 shown on page 4 of this Gallery.
However the requirement was somewhat different. The problem being in Client keeping her feet on the pedals during raising of the pedals, rather that specific location of the feet.
The solution was therefore a shoe like arrangement with a toe that could be used to assist in raising the pedals during rotation. A moccasin arrangement was devised by forming the shoe around a sole clamped to the machine pedals. The shoe in leather formed around a sole bolted to the machine pedals was kindly made and donated by Savage Angel Leather. The attached sequence shows the method of costruction
