    x2 on what Obed said.

    I stumbled on this bath/shower option recently. I have no experience with it, but it looks to be pretty innovative:

      Interesting, but many would not want to have to transfer and sit on the toilet to brush their teeth or shave, and the transfer to the toilet could not be done with a lift.

      Limited use at best for most people with mobility problems. Reminds me of an airline toilet.

            Hi all,

            Geez, I haven't been here in a while. Sorry I didn't see all the more recent responses. I haven't had a chance to meet with the developer since I've had all this input - so your ideas will still be very helpful. My husband's father is a developer in another state and he came up with a design/layout for me based on the comments from this site and his own experience.

            I'd attach the design here - but it won't let me - it's a pdf. Is there someone who can let me put it up?

            Thanks again for all your input.

              Note for myself - and anyone else - another thread talking about a portable shower SCI Nurse found.
