Tips and tricks from people with spinal cord injuries (SCI).
Accessible shower stall
Shower stall with walls that open and rubber strip – suitable for wheelchair users
The shower stall has folding walls that can be opened outwards and can be folded completely against the bathroom wall. A rubber strip is glued to the bathroom floor instead of a plinth under the shower stall.
The rubber strip works very well, it holds all the water inside the stall. The assistants tilt the shower chair slightly when they drive him over the rubber strip.
