CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To enable an individual with mobility disabilities to independently enter and exit a shower stall. Two lengths of steel were mounted between the front hob and a bracket screwed into the back wall of the shower stall. A frame to support the chair was mounted on rollers in the the steel with three stop positions. A release mechanism enables the user to choose which stop position is used. One stop is outside the shower, the second enables the user to place only the hands and arms under the shower, and the third puts the user under the shower. The chair mounted to the assembly enables the user to slide in and out of the shower. The steel assembly was hot-dipped galvanized to prevent corrosion. TITLE: Shower Chair Rails.
