Toilet and bidet
|The client’s mother required protection around the home against drop seizures of her epileptic child.
For the toilet and bidet, closed cell foam protective edge strip (sold for packing of paintings and mirrors) were used. It is designed to absorb knocks, is waterproof and washable. By cutting pieces out of its edge, it was made to conform the the shape of the bowls. Additional pieces were supplied for when the others are being cleaned.
The sink area is protected by a shaped pad cut from a thick closed cell physiotherapy exercise mat, designed specially to absorb impact. This is also waterproof and washable. It is colour-coordinated to match the kitchen. Holes in the left hand section allow water to drain through onto the draining board below.
An off-cut of the mat was used to protect the desk.
Additional protection was provided for use at school, see below.
