Wheelchair accessible sauna

An accessible sauna that can be used while sitting on a shower chair on casters

Description
The sauna is adjacent to the bathroom. The button to turn the sauna on and off is easily accessible outside the sauna. Part of the bench was cut away to make room for the shower chair in the sauna. Door made of glass.

Authors comments
The user can turn the sauna on and off. He chose a glass door, since glass is the thinnest material for a door. The door only has enough room to open 90 degrees and the doorway could not be widened. The user sits on the shower chair in the sauna.
