Mark Mercer (Leeds & Bradford) would like help with the following please:
We have been asked by an OT to source a boiler to be used by a man with no arms. He lives in a council flat in sheltered accommodation and is determinedly independent. He has a single short stump and could handle a boiler tap with a long lever but the only one we are so far aware of does not output via a swinging arm which is a desirable feature in this case. There are plenty of water heaters with swinging arms but the ones we have looked at so far limit the water temperature to about 75 deg. and require filling from a tap.
The management of the complex will fit the boiler but it must be sourced and approved by the OT who is asking for our help. The potential risk of scalding is the main reason the OT has appealed to REMAP.
The geyser must be:
- The permanently plumbed in type.
- Electric not gas
- Not have a very high flow rate (in case a bowl or spoon is placed under it.)
- Outlet via a swinging arm.
- An outlet control that we can modify by way of an extension arm or remote control.
We would be most grateful if anyone is aware of a product that might fit the bill.
