Convenient shower and toilet chair with soft seat

Soft seat on shower chair facilitates transfers for wheelchair users.

Description
The user uses a travel shower chair without armrest and with a seat site every day. He attached a thin StimuLITE cushion to the backrest.
The chair can easily be pulled apart and packed in a suitcase. The suitcase is the right size for carry-on luggage on planes. The chair is only 54 cm wide and fits through almost all doors. The chair can also be purchased with driving gear.

Model shower and toilet chair: Chameleon
The soft seat is a accessory for Chameleon.

Authors comments
The user is extremely satisfied with the cushion, which provides a good grip for transfers. The StimuLITE cushion on the backrest improves sitting.
In the past he only used the shower chair for showering; since he has major problems with one shoulder he now also uses the chair as a toilet chair to avoid one transfer.
