Raise/lower seat mobility aid
The client’s cottage has a narrow landing and limited access to the bathroom, which precluded use of wheelchair.
The solution was to build a wheeled conveyance for use over carpeted areas. With the seat in its lowered position the client could take himself from bedroom to bathroom. Once alongside the washbasin the seat could be raised to allow use of basin and mirror to wash and shave. A hydraulic jack under the seat effected the raise/lower as required.
The client retains independent access between bedroom and bathroom.
