A range of adaptive equipment designed to individual specifications for children and adults with disabilities.
Switches can be connected to a wide range of battery operated toys, communication devices, and electrical appliances. Switches enable children with severe disabilities to experience cause and effect, to play and have fun, and to interact with their environment. The switch can for instance be plugged into a switch adapted toy, so that all the child has to do to turn the toy on and "play" with it is to press the switch with that part of their body over which they have the most control.
Wiseman Makhatini has a few types of switches that he makes through his small business, SM Conversions. Click on the pictures below for specifications. Should you wish to order a switch from Wiseman, he can be contacted on 083 487 7477 or on our office line, 031 708 1785
Switch toys for children with severe motor disabilities. Children with severe motor impairments cannot access toys normally. Playing with toys is not only educational and motivating but is a wonderful way for children to experience cause and effect. Adapting a toy to be used with a switch is a simple way to allow a child with severe motor impairments to play. How this works is that a simple switch is connected to the battery operated toy, and when the child activates the switch by pressing it (with that part of their body over which they have the most control e.g. head, chin, foot, elbow, or hand), the toy will then "come to life" and either make a noise or move etc.
Wiseman Makhatini converts battery operated toys to accommodate switch access. Adapted toys can be ordered directly from Wiseman through his small business, SM Conversions. Should you wish to order any of the toys shown below, Wiseman can be contacted on 083 487 7477 or via our office line 031 708 1785.
Children with specialised seating and positioning needs are individually assessed and appropriate solutions are manufactured or recommended.
Adaptations can be made to existing equipment or an appropriate solution can be made up in our workshop or recommended.
