Users comments
Bathroom visits have always been a problem for the user when she was out. In the past she always brought her mobile floor lift. The problem was that the floor lift was in the car, which was sometimes parked far away. Now she uses her custom-built lift (see associated tip) and a large mixing bowl which is fits in an IKEA bag. A great relief for her.
