At Remap we recognise that many of the people we help are at particular risk from coronavirus. In addition, our free service is provided by a network of volunteers, many of whom are retired and at additional risk themselves.

Our priority is to keep everyone safe so we are avoiding face to face contact where possible. You can find our policy statement here. As ever, please contact your nearest Remap group for their advice.

Keep well and stay safe!

Cutlery holder

Posted 1 July 2016 in Awards

Hazel contacted Remap asking for help because she could no longer hold cutlery and could not use any off-the-peg aids. She is unable to use the fingers of one hand and has limited arm movement as a result of post-polio syndrome, so something had to be designed especially for her.1086 (1280x960)

Graham Stabler, a volunteer with Remap Oxford has made her a very functional and elegant holder, which keeps its shape even in the dishwasher. The design features a bespoke handle into which a fork or spoon can be inserted, enabling Hazel to eat independently.
