Mum of 7 month old baby, and full time wheelchair user, couldn’t put her baby into the cot, as it was the wrong height for her to wheel underneath, and the sides dropped down preventing her from getting near enough to get the baby in and out. Remap was asked to raise the cot, and replace the drop down side with hinged doors.

The solution

Fitted wooden leg extensions to raise height of cot to suit wheelchair user.

Cut side panel into two sections and add hinges either end. Fitted safety latches.

The benefit

Client can get close enough to the cot in her wheelchair to get the baby in and out, without assistance.

    This is exactly what I need for my son while he’s recovering post-op! What kind of hinges did you use? Are the latches noisy? Could you please send me a link?
