The challenge

Child's bath seatAbbie is a small girl with severe quadriplegic cerebral palsy who loves having a bath but has outgrown her bath seat and is now too heavy for her mother to support in the bath.

A standard Fisher-Price high chair was stripped of the footrest and all straps & padding. The rear legs were shortened to give a greater rake, and golf balls attached to fit the bath contours. A towel provides adequate padding.

Abbie loves her new bath seat and can now have a bath every day. A secondary benefit is that this adaptation provides a low level support for other purposes.
