The challenge

Hair washing shieldThe client needed some form of shield to help her carer wash her hair, she cannot bend backward so the shield needs to deflect water down the front as well as protecting her at the rear.

A shield was made from a large plastic seed tray, cut across to fit around her neck with soft closed cell expanded neoprene cord to provide some seal for the aperture around the neck.

She can now have her hair washed and stay reasonably dry.
