We also produces other therapeutic equipment such as parallel bars, therapy mirrors and mats.

The appliances are produced with consideration to the envionments in which they will be used. Appliances are kept cost-effective so that they can remain affordable to all who have a need. The workshop staff perform fittings and take time to train clients in the best use of the appliances, to ensure that they will continue to be effective once the client leaves KCH.

The KCH workshop also produces appliances for adults.
