The challenge

A young lady with muscular dystrophy was beginning to encounter difficulties supporting the weight of her upper arms and reaching for shampoos etc when showering and washing her hair.

A detachable tray was devised which fitted across the arms of a standard shower chair enabling the client to rest her elbows on the tray and reduce upper arm and shoulder fatigue when washing her hair. The tray also serves as an accessible surface for the toiletries.

The shower tray gives the client extended independence and self-reliance during her showering routine.
