Samuel discovers freedom with his Oxy-gem

Samuel and his oxy-gem

Samuel’s mum Joceline recently contacted our Innovation Centre. As a member of a parent group on Facebook, she had seen how another child had benefited from our Oxy-gem. She knew that it would be perfect to help Samuel.

Three year-old Samuel has Down’s Syndrome and small airways disease. This means that he is on oxygen 24/7 and whilst he can walk, he could not carry the weight of his oxygen cylinder so his mobility was extremely restricted.

Joceline knew that the Oxy-gem could greatly improve Samuel’s independence and the Innovation Centre team were happy to help!

We sent Samuel one of our Oxy-gems in time for him to take it for a test drive around Blenheim Palace!

Joceline told us: ‘It was the first time he’d been able to participate on foot, rather than in his buggy.  You can see the excitement on his face.  The trolley went for a good 20 mins, on the path, on the grass, through the leaves….it was a life liberating day for him. He also uses it at school twice a week and it’s brilliant.  

Thank you so much for your help with this. I cannot begin to tell you how valuable the Oxygem is to us.  It has freed our son from the shackles of a buggy and helped him develop his independence and core strength and physical stamina.’

Oxy – Gem

Oxy-Gem enables children to independently transport their own oxygen cylinders, ventilator or food pump. We’ve designed a seat for those well-earned breaks and a little added room for fun items like toys and books! Oxy-Gem was developed with a child’s independence in mind. Now they are free to explore without constant adult help while being the envy of all the other children in school.

“Oh wow, thank you….. This is going to promote her independence so much and make a huge difference to all our lives.” – Caroline

CIC Need Testers for Exciting New Product!

Oxygen Trolley Plans

Oxygen Trolley Plans

The Cerebra Innovation Centre (CIC) are currently working on plans for a new Oxygen Trolley and we are looking for testers.

We mentioned in the last newsletter that one of our plans for this year is to develop our little Oxygen Trolley to incorporate as many uses and make it available for as many children as possible.

So the plan currently is to make one product that will enable children to transport their own oxygen, ventilator or food pump, and some toys/books etc to make it more inclusive and more of a toy that carries their equipment.

We are trying to develop it so that it can be pushed along and thereby give support as a walker, or pulled along for the more mobile children, and can be sat on to act as a ride-on toy! We have one more addition to make that is not shown here and this is to add steerable wheel to the front for children who are more mobile and stable.

Shown below are some photos of the current design. This first prototype is being sent to some very eager Occupational Therapists in the Long Term Ventilation Team at Queens Medical Centre in Nottingham. They are going to assess the product then pass it on to its new owner, a 2 year old boy.

The next one is shooting off to Liverpool for the same assessment by the Liverpool team. We are meeting some more OTs in the Royal Bromton Hospital in London and hopefully by then will have the design perfected.
