Small chair for shower with armrest and back

Space-saving solution for persons with high spinal cord injuries who have a ceiling lift in the bathroom.

The folding shower chair has fixed armrests. The legs were cut to a suitable height. A Roho cushion is used to relieve pressure.
Model: ETAC shower chair Rufus with back support hygiene recess.

Authors comments
In order to allow her feet to rest firmly on the floor Susanne shortened the legs of the chair. She transfers to the shower chair using a ceiling lift. Shower curtain creates problems when using the ceiling lift. Susanne has seen plastic blinds that can be screwed into ceiling and lowered, available at designtorget. Glass doors would work, depending on how the bathroom is furnished. It must be possible to fold them back. Would like a tub in the next apartment.
