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 27 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 scooter for disabled child
The client, a 16 year old child, was unable to use a standard scooter. We adapted one by fitting modified wheels to make it easier for her to balance and more robust: Parts were mainly 3D printed
The client has limited hand grip and is unable to use a standard “helping hand” type grabber. This re-chargeable battery powered grabber was made using an electric robot claw, controlled with a modified toggle switch with an extended shaft. This is a variation on a design by another Remap branch (see Makeability website for more details).
