    Folding shower wheelchair

    I found this and like the concept and super simple assembly and disasembly.


    I use a MultiChair for travel which is great but nowhere as simple as this appears.

    It does not to be height adjustable.

    I looked at this at a conference recently. The cushion is, in my mind, not sufficient padding for someone with a SCI. It also does not have any easy way to reach under the seat to do manual removal or dig stim from any direction except the front of the seat. No opening in the back, and not enough room to get your hand underneath the seat from the side. As you say, it is not height adjustable, nor does it come in different widths. Would also be difficult to self-propel for someone with limited hand function. 220 lb. weight capacity, and only a seat width of less than 15". $1800-2100.

    Good shower/commodes have a built in cushion that is sufficient, but we will often add on a Roho commode seat cushion for our clients who are recovering from a pressure ulcer or flap surgery, and so at higher risk.
