Problem with a shower wheel chair
From Jim Hollom, Remap North East Essex
Our client has a shower wheel chair. He transfers to the shower chair outside the bathroom. He then wheels himself into the bathroom.
He then decides he needs to use the toilet but has forgotten to put on the brake. Whoops!!! As he gets out the wheel chair moves and then he falls.
The OT requested some device to stop him getting out of the wheel chair with the brake off but all my proposed solutions have been rejected.
Has anyone come across this problem before? If so what solution was adopted?”
