CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To provide shower support for people with mobility and balance disabilities who do not or cannot have rails installed in the bathroom for the toilet or shower. Freestanding rails are adapted for use in the shower to provide support and an overall feeling of safety. Freestanding rails used as a toilet rail system are adapted by using 25 millimeter (mm) stainless steel tubing to add new rails at 1065 mm above the floor. Non-slip foam tubing is glued to the upper rails, and the original stoppers on the bottom of the legs are replaced with non-slip ones. TITLE: Safe Showering. JOURNAL: TAD Journal.
