Felix is 5 years old and has an undiagnosed life limiting neurological condition. He loves to play but is unable to walk, crawl or sit up without support. When he is playing and his toy gets out of reach, there’s no way Felix can get it again until mum comes to the rescue.
Felix’s mum Sarah got in touch with DEMAND with an idea that would help Felix to access the toys he loves to play with. Our designers visited Sarah and Felix at their home in Harrogate to discuss a potential solution.
Seeing how Felix plays with his toys helped our designers decide on a plan of action. They agreed that Sarah’s suggestion of a rotating table would indeed be the ideal solution for Felix, meaning that he could have access to many more toys, even the ones that roll out of his reach, simply by turning the table.
“Christmas has certainly come early for Felix. This new custom height adjustable superhero table designed just for Felix has been made and delivered today. The table spins around (a bit like a lazy Susan) so Felix can access all his toys rather than just what’s in his current reach. Thank you so much Ben and Oliver it’s absolutely amazing. The attention to detail is incredible. Felix says he is staying in it all day!” Felix’s Mum Sarah writes
If you or someone you know could benefit from a custom design like this, get in touch to discuss your ideas with our team.
51 year old Mark from Chesham has a new custom made communication aid which allows him to communicate even though he is unable to speak.
Mark has cerebral palsy which affects the movement and control of his muscles, he communicates by pointing in turn to letters and phrases on the board. He is a talented artist whose work has been exhibited with The Birchwood Painters at The Chesham Museum.
Our team have been making the communication aids Mark needs for many years because, like all of the equipment made by us, there is no suitable alternative on the market. Having a custom made word board is absolutely essential to Mark and allows him to communicate with friends, family and anyone he meets in his own unique style.
