Bath plug aid
The client has arthritis and finds it very difficult to bend down. She has an electrically operated bath seat to help her in and out of the bath but she found it almost impossible to fit and remove the plug.
A standard rubber bath plug was fitted into a plastic water pipe via a pin. The pin allows the plug to rotate and swivel independently of the tube. The client can fit the plug in the bath from a near standing position and can rest the pipe against the side for later easy access. To prevent any buoyancy effects due to trapped air this cap was drilled to give a small central air release hole.
The client can now maintain her independence (and dignity) by bathing herself.
