A bathroom floor needed to be levelled with a platform / step, in order to allow a child with weak limbs to access the bath.

Changing Unit

The child was too large for the existing changing unit, but the available space was very limited, and a larger unit would not fit in the available space. Extending the existing unit was the only option.

Commode Seat

Child receiving end of life care. OT tried a child’s commode chair but the aperture in the middle was too small. Specialist products take several months for delivery. This was too urgent to wait, so the OT asked if the standard product could be adapted.

Bath transfer aid

A young man with severe cerebral palsy and spasms was being lifted by his parents into and out of a Leckey bath chair for bathing, affecting their backs.
