CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To enable a teenage girl with short stature to independently enter and exit a bathtub. A stainless steel rail was installed along the side of the tub that extended five millimeters out from it. A three-step ladder was made of stainless steel tubing that clips to the rail for stability. The ladder also slides along the rail if needed. A trough of plastic downspout pipe clips over the tub to protect the tub edge from the ladder. Stair treads for the ladder were made of waterproof plywood coated with polyurethane and painted with non-slip tread deck paint. Crutch caps were fitted to the ends of the ladder which rest against the bath. DIMENSIONS: The tub rail was made of 25 mm thick stainless steel. The stainless steel got the ladder was 19 mm in diameter. TITLE: Bathroom Access. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 27, Number 3, October 2007: p. 8-9. PAGES: 3 (including cover).
