Remap: customised disability equipment
Remap volunteers make or adapt existing equipment to help disabled people live more independent lives.
This includes mobility, help in the home, managing personal care, enjoying sports and hobbies and much more.
For example, Luke is a quadruple amputee, losing the use of limbs due to contracting meningococcal meningitis. Remap engineered an aid that could strap onto Luke’s upper arm that would enable him to hold and play with a table tennis bat. Several more fixtures have been developed for Luke to become creative with, as he now has the ability to hold a pencil, stylus or rod to pick up Lego pieces.
Many of the Remap volunteers are also IMechE members, plus they also work with occupational therapists, carpenters and a range of technicians.
Support Network is partnering with Remap to help more people receive their help, plus enable more IMechE members to become Remap volunteers.
