Cerebra Innovation Centre’s Rocket Shelf Finds a New Home

The Cerebra Innovation Centre recently designed these rocket shelves. This cool piece of equipment was originally designed for a young boy, to help his mum who has to transport numerous medical machines whilst transferring him from room to room.

They were styled to suit a child’s bedroom and be more like a child’s toy rather than looking dull and medical. They feature 3 shelves, space to store an oxygen bottle, a 4 socket extension lead so all the machines are plugged in and you only need one wall socket, and 4 omnidirectional wheels so it can be moved around effortlessly. Additionally, there is ample space to wind wires and store bits and bobs.

Since the team at the Innovation Centre first started making the shelves, there have been many happy children and parents that have benefited from the design, including Eve. She and Dad Steven are currently testing out the rocket shelves and sent us these gorgeous pictures.

Steven said: “It’s amazing THANK you so much I will send more pictures as we go on amazing.”

Heidi and Tim also had a rocket shelf for their little one Charlotte, and we were so pleased when Heidi sent us in this lovely feedback.

Heidi says “The shelving unit is working out great for us and easily stores all her machinery and medical items, fitting well into the bedroom space.

The fact it is on wheels is great as we have to change her ventilators weekly which means needing easy access to the back of the machines which the wheels and open backing provides for”

Thank you to everyone for the wonderful feedback on our rocket shelves.
