High commodeThe client required a ‘downhill’ transfer to move to and from the commode when he used it at night. His bed was height adjustable and the height could be adjusted to enable him to get onto the commode but would not go low enough for the return journey.

By extending the legs so that the seat of the commode was 24” high a downhill transfer could be achieved in both directions. The additional height was achieved by removing the wheels on the chair and making up new legs from electrical conduit. These were turned down to fit inside the tubular legs and were held in place by the original bolts that retained the wheels. Walking stick rubbers were fitted to provide grip protection for the floor.

The client was able to use the commode at night unassisted.
