Welcome to Remap Bristol!

Remap Bristol is a branch of Remap, a national charity that provides custom-made equipment for disabled people in the Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire areas.  Our 30 or so skilled volunteers provide innovative, practical solutions to everyday challenges encountered by disabled people.

Please take a look at some typical successful cases here we have completed in the past.


Special gloves

The client the partial loss of some of his fingers on one hand due to an accident. After some clever surgery the client is able to grip with his hand but two of his fingers are now fused. Tissue transplant  surgery has repaired the damage but nerve damage has resulted in loss of sensation and a susceptibility to sustain injury during his work. A set of special left hand gloves was requested, to take into account his unique hand shape. A 3D scan was carried out on the client’s hand and a 3D printed model created (shown on the left of the picture) which enables a number of gloves to be easily created.

Custom stair handrails

We frequently get asked to help clients negotiate stairs in their home. These handrails were constructed where fixing was difficult and previously rejected by other agencies.
