Designs, manufactures and supplies unique technical aids
DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE:
REMAP Scotland assists disabled people to overcome specific problems encountered in their daily lives by designing, manufacturing and supplying "one-off" items of mechanical and electronic equipment when no suitable commercially produced equipment is available.
The charity provides a largely free of charge service across most of Scotland through 13 Panels, comprising health professionals, generally occupational therapists or physiotherapists, together with volunteer engineers, technicians, tradesmen and people with model-making or DIY skills.
Referrals are accepted from health professionals, social workers and other community workers and, of course, direct from individuals, their friends or carers.
Volunteers make no charge for their services, or quite often, the equipment supplied, so financial or material donations are gratefully accepted.
The website, http://www.remap-scotland.org includes more examples of completed projects, together with contact details.
If anyone would like to contribute their skills to this very worthwhile and satisfying work, their local REMAP Scotland Panel would make them most welcome.
