North Wales need help with the following please:
I have looked into Remapedia and found 4 dressing situations that may help one of our OTs and engineer but don’t really solve the problem. (see attachments above, some pictures not very clear)
A young gentleman who has no movement or power at all in his arms and hands wants to be able to put his own shirt on to go to work every day rather than have care staff do this for him.
Something has been made as a prototype but hasn’t worked – it was a coat hanger with pegs on a rise and fall mechanism, as you can imagine with no movement once one arm drops into the lowered position, the shirt is then tightened as it would your own thus changing the position available for the other and of course he can’t alter his position to facilitate this.
Our Engineer and OT have tried a few things but wonder if anyone has come across a similar problem and resolved it but not archived it ?
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated..
