Examples of help we have given:
For a client who could not hold a cup or suck through a straw we made a pump cup system which allowed the client to squeeze a bulb to get a drink without needing the help of another person.
For a child with cerebral palsy we adapted the brakes on her bicycle so they could be operated one handed
We made a set of steps to allow a child of reduced growth to climb in and out of the bath independently
We adapted a ‘walker’ to provide a lower seat and a one handed brake
