Description
The electric toothbrush sits in a holder consisting of a plastic tube on a flexible arm. To brush teeth the user adjusts the wheelchair height so that his mouth is at the right height in relation to the toothbrush. Now it is easy for him to brush his teeth since the toothbrush moves easily in the loose holder. An assistant places toothpaste on the toothbrush.
