The challenge

Toilet transfer boardThe client has muscular dystrophy and had difficulty transferring to and from her wheelchair. The commercially available transfer board was unsuitable for her toilet because it was too long and the aperture did not fit.

A toilet seat was manufactured from 18mm ply and fitted with a plastic bridge which rose over the wheelchair tyre, to avoid snagging.

The client is now able to position her wheelchair and manipulate herself onto the toilet on her own.
