Hand rail

 

Bed lever/rail extension

Shower step

An elderly man was finding it difficult to access the family shower because of the 200mm step. A 100mm commercial step had been provided by the Occupational Therapist in order to present two smaller stages but the lack of handholds still made it difficult.
This project was simply a low step with handrails both sides. It provided more security and the possibility to help the ascent with the arms as well as legs.
