Shower board for corner bathAn elderly man is unable to transfer into his bath due to limited standing balance and restricted range of movement in his knees. Standard bath boards were not suitable for his corner bath.

WDP Plywood was cut to shape and slots were cut to facilitate drainage. Three L- shaped fittings were used to provide anchorage to the bath. Two effectively clamp the outer side of the bath, and the third slots into a handle, which exists on the inner side of the bath (next to the wall). This prevents the board from moving away from the wall. The board was varnished with a tough water resistant yacht varnish. The gentleman is now able to transfer onto the bath with the assistance of his wife, and shower regularly.
