CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To enable individuals with a variety of disabilities to use a toilet. The rails were made from discarded hospital bedheads and mounted to the existing metal wall clamps. The backrest was made from the pad of a telephone table and mounted to a piece of wood connected to two wooden clamps that fit over the rails. A T-nut on either side enables the backrest to slide backward and forward along the rails for adjustment to meet individual needs. A chest strap provides additional support if needed.
