Our client had a stroke impacting one side and he uses a grab handle that fits in his car door frame to move in and out. He just replaced his car with an SUV and found the handle is too far from the ground.
Our volunteer quickly modified the grab handle so that it is the required height.
Our client said “I am very happy with my new Grab Handle and appreciate the work the volunteer did for me and how prompt he was”.
Our client is 11 years old and she enjoys playing in a large cubby house with her younger sister. Her wheelchair fits through the cubby porch but unfortunately not the cubby door and she has grown too big for her Mum to carry her through the door.
Tadvic narrowed the windows to the side and widened the door so the wheelchair now fits through the door.
A Tadvic volunteer broke his hip in a cycling accident. Another volunteer added a meals tray to a 4 wheel walker so the injured volunteer could move his meal from the bench to the table without assistance. The tray lifts off the walker and can be placed on a table.
Soon after his recovery, a neighbour of a Tadvic volunteer had a hip replaced. The walker / trolley was again put to good use.
Then an elderly relative of a volunteer had a fall and needed a 4 wheel walker. She also wanted to be able to move a meal while using a walker. Again the modified walker has been used.
Tadvic is the re-creation of a volunteer organisation formed over 40 years ago. The original organisation is now called Freedom Solutions Australia. There is no connection between the organisations. Tadvic strives to be a low cost provider of quality assistive technology.
