MERU (Medical Engineering Resource Unit)
MERU designs and makes life-changing disability products for children and young people with disabilities. Some children have disabilities that are so complex that no available products for children with disabilities meets their needs.
At MERU we use our design and engineering skills to custom-make exactly what each child needs to achieve their goals.
Our aim is to help young disabled people to achieve the following aspirations:
- to feel healthy
- to be comfortable and safe
- to be able to look after themselves
- get around by themselves
- to learn and achieve
- to have fun
- make friends
- to feel liberated
What we do
At MERU we offer an individual design and manufacturing service of disability products for young disabled people when no other product exists to meet their needs. We can make modifications to existing disability products and repair damaged equipment, as well as custom-designing and manufacturing new and complex items.
We also offer a range of ready-made disability products that may be of help. They are designed and manufactured in-house by our engineers and volunteers in response to requests from families and therapists. They are available to purchase from our online shop and sales of these affordable solutions help support our custom-making service.
If you would like more information about any of our services, please contact us.
