Toilet benchThe client is a wheelchair user and was finding it difficult transferring to the toilet from his wheelchair partly because of a progressive lack of strength and partly because of the position of the toilet in the corner of the room.

A bench was constructed so as to provide a level transfer area to get to the toilet, and provided with a hole over the toilet. This worked well but the increase in height above the toilet did lead to the client wetting the floor. Fitting a side from a plastic bucket under the bench to form a deflector plate solved this problem. Incorporating the spout from the bucket into this deflector plate provided a professional finish!

The client can now get on and off the toilet more easily.
