A child with a leg disorder was required to have a steel brace permanently fitted. When seated on a toilet the diameter of the leg brace caused her to be seated off balance, resulting in her spine being twisted.
A fibreglass moulded seat was manufactured with a suitable indentation to accommodate her leg brace. This seat was then combined with a camping style portaloo so that the child could ‘reach’ her own toilet without requiring parental aid. The whole was then fitted into a chrome steel frame to provide suitable side support.
The child can now use a toilet without resulting in spinal twist. Such was the success of this project that a further shaped seat arrangement was made to fit onto a conventional toilet for use whilst at school.
