The client uses a hand-powered Arjo shower chair hoist for showering and to access the therapy pool.  It is very old and the powder-coating is failing, which has meant that a recent inspection has condemned it.  The modern equivalent model does not allow the seat to be lowered sufficiently to suit the client’s small stature.  She is therefore unable to use the shower or pool.

On inspection, the chair was found to be sound beneath the coating and it was decided to re-coat it.  The coating was burnt off (unusually it was nylon and could not be sandblasted) and the metalwork re-coated.  The opportunity was also taken to replace the foot rests.
