CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To enable an individual with spina bifida to shower independently. An existing shower seat had been custom built and mounted to the side wall of the shower at a slight angle to promote damage. The unit had a wooden seat covered with plastic, but over time water had penetrated the wood, causing it to rot and eventually break. A new seat base was made from 12 millimeter high-density polyethylene with rounded corners. Glued to the base was a sheet of closed-cell foam to create a soft, non-slippery seating surface. The seat was attached to the original mounting using stainless steel brackets. TITLE: Shower Seat. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Vol 23 no 1, Autumn 2003: p. 7. PAGES (including cover): 2 2003.
