CUSTOMIZED ADAPTATIONPURPOSE: To create a custom adaptation for an individual with mobility disabilities to transfer into and use a shower in private and unaided while being able to fully close a sliding shower door. A piece of cedar was fastened to the legs of a bathtub chair using four stainless steel hose clips. A two-legged stool was constructed using half-inch MDF for the side plates and seat and spruce wood for the legs and leg braces. The two legs rest on the floor of the bathroom, and notches near the ends of the seat side plates rest over the piece of cedar that is fastened to the chair. Rubber cane tips ensure that the legs will not slip and to protect the floor. Small pads of carpet are attached to the inside of the leg braces to protect the rim of the tub from possible knocks. The user slides from his or her wheelchair across the stool and onto a bathtub chair, then the user lifts the stool and moves it away from the bath so that it rests on the tub rim again the door track. Two slots in the seat of the stool (plus an extra piece of wood between them under the seat) provide a pistol grip handle that enables the user to lift and move the stool easily with one hand. The stool is normally stored in the bathtub so that it takes up no floor space. TITLE: The Bath Transfer Stool. WEBSITE: Workshop Solutions at http://www.workshopsolutions.com/COMPLETE/bathseat.htm.
