Hi

The council don't want the automatic door opener back

It is a possum piece of kit,

Infra red automatic door opener with switches.

would like it to go to someone with MND. If you are interested then please get in touch as you would need to be in touch with me and with possum as i understand that whilst the kit was orignially expenisve the installation can be costly too so you would need to make sure that it really is the right thing for you.

When mum used it she could manage getting in and out of the house alone just with slight movement of the hand on a button, there is also a larger switch for the wall that can be depressed.

Hi
the best thing would be to speak with your OT who could explore options. If you rent off someone or the council you could ask them to install something that makes the fire doors open automatically

the one my mum has was for her front door only, it had a control system on the top and an arm that was connected to the door. she could depress a button, and when that was too hard slightly touch a switch- all infrared and the door would open automatically. we had it programmed to close after 20 seconds.

the company was possum.

Just thining about communal doors- they could be difficult even with a disabled access button to depress if you dont have use of your arms to reach

have you asked MNDA for any ideas
