Urine guard for toilet

Project  / Project number: Yeo/1/8/18  /  Status:

The challenge

A young man with cerebral palsy experiences uncoordinated movements of his upper body; he would like to urinate in the home WC without missing the bowl and spreading urine around the bathroom.

The solution

The solution was to provide a plastic guard that fitted into the toilet bowl to stop un-directed urine from missing it.

A suitable item was available from the USA but as it was not possible to import it a unit of similar design was made by modifying a plastic plasterer’s bucket.

The benefit

The young man is now able to use the toilet without splashing.
