Child’s book page-turner

Child's book page-turnerDerby Children’s Hospital has many children who love books but due to disabilities are unable to hold or manipulate them. Remap were asked to help.

After several design studies, a unit was developed that would cope with books with a maximum of 48 pages. The final design had the book clamped to an inclinable small table. Two cordless screwdriver motors provided the power to operate a propeller working in conjunction with a “ruckler” wheel to turn the book page. A prototype has been developed that has undergone user trials at the hospital.

Disabled children can look at and read a book without assistance.
