The challenge

Detachable toilet seat pan on wheelchairA client with a severe bowel problem and poliomyelitis has to spend a number of hours each day on a commode.

A shallow box type commode was made to fit on her wheelchair seat when required. The assembly is 12cm high with a removable top and seat pad. The frame is welded 6mm plastic sheet and the seat pad is made of a special foam plastic with a sealed, wipe clean surface, designed for this type of application. The pan is a standard, domestic, stainless steel kitchen pan. The client finds it very comfortable (and convenient) and her husband is delighted by its ease of manipulation.
