In need of a unique disability aid?

Need your existing mobility aid modified or adapted to your needs?
Need something made just for you​?  Something out of the ordinary?  Not in the shops?  Take a look at these charity websites to see scope of the extraordinary challenges overcome by these two organisations.

DEMAND Design & Manufacture for Disability was the brainchild of Lord and Lady Renton and born 36 years ago from personal frustration with the all too often failure of off-the-shelf equipment to address the unique needs of people with disabilities.
Today we are a charity with full-time designers, engineers working from extensively equipped workshops dedicated to designing, making, modifying and fixing equipment which improves people’s mobility, independence and access to life-enriching activities and experiences. 
We are based in Abbots Langley and over the years we have helped many people with MS, like Wendy (see p13).

REMAPis a national charity that works through local groups of skilled volunteers. We help disabled people achieve independence and a better quality of life by designing and making equipment for their individual needs. This tailor made equipment helps people to carry out essential daily tasks without having to ask for help, or helps them take part in leisure occupations or sports that would otherwise be impossible.

Our focus at Remap is to give people independence because we know how important this is. Many people have a physical impairment of some sort. But your life changes if you have to rely on others all the time. By making a piece of equipment specifically for an individual, tailored to their needs, we can often help them become that bit more independent.

Remap gives disabled people the joy of independence.
