The challenge

Toilet transferThis lady has very bad tremors and kept slipping off the toilet with the likelihood of injuring herself.

A sheet of thick Perspex was cut to fit the gap between the walls, and profiled round the toilet seat to give continuous support. The Perspex, being attached to the seat, allowed easy cleaning of the bowl.

The material used gave a smooth and easily cleaned surface which provided a safe support to prevent the client slipping over the side of the toilet.
