As the paralysis or weakness affects either side of the body, the design of the Wraparound Rail enables the user to grip the rail with their 'good' hand and work their hand around the top rail thereby maintaining support while turning in order to lower themselves down onto the toilet.
The Wraparound model greatly minimises the chance of falls.
This model will also give MS patients great support, and anyone using a wheelchair requiring a front approach transfer will find the Wraparound Rail ideal.
When standing, both hands can be used to grip each side of the rail. Hand contact with the rail can be maintained while turning into a comfortable position in order to lower onto the toilet. When seated the user has support on both sides as well as at the back.
