Toilet handrailThe client, having had a stroke, needed support from his left hand to rise from the toilet. A tubular rail, previously fitted, was too far away and to avoid the doorway, too far back to be of use.

A steel tube running inside the original tube was welded to a plate. This was welded to a frame with a wooden rail at the top and wheels on the floor. This could be moved forward across the doorway and secured with a peg.

The client can now push up with his left hand and after use when he is standing, retract the rail to clear the doorway.
