CUSTOM ADAPTATIONPURPOSE: To enable caregiver -assisted showering of an adult with severe multiple disabilities. This individual is unable to sit independently and cannot use a conventional shower chair due to scoliosis and hip positioning issues. The chair was built with the narrowest possible width to accommodate maneuvering in narrow areas of the home. This chair has a 22 millimeter zinc-dipped, powder-coated steel tube frame with triangular struts for added durability and stability. Caster wheels provide mobility. The seat was made from a full ring padded toilet seat and is angled 25 degrees from horizontal. The back is angled at 35 degrees from horizontal and consists of three padded crosspieces with small gaps in between for drainage. DIMENSIONS: The front edge of the seat is 660 millimeters above the floor. TITLE: Shower Chair. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Vol 22, no 2, Winter 2002: p 14. PAGES (including cover) 2 2002.
