The challenge

Transportable padded toilet seatThis client has motor neurone disease (MND) and now requires a padded toilet seat which he has on his normal toilet unit. However when he goes for respite to a nursing home he does not have the same facility.

As it was not possible to obtain an additional seat, a standard toilet support frame was modified to hold the seat allowing the entire unit to be moved from place to place. It has the additional advantage of extra padding on the sides using standard plumber’s pipe insulating sleeves.

The client benefited by always having the same level of comfort regardless of location.
