Our client uses a wheelchair for mobility and has limited upper limb function. She requested something that would hold her hairdryer above her head and allow her to move the hairdryer.

In addition she was about to go on a trip and wanted something portable. She already had a suction hand rail. We provided an “arm” that connected to the suction hand rail; held the hairdryer and could be rotated with a cord. The hairdryer can be switched on/off at the wall power point, which is reachable by the client.

The Hairdryer and Mount

The same client wanted something to help her press a toilet flush button (when she was travelling).

Tadvic suggested carrying a plastic bottle cap, but it would mean she pressed both buttons.

Tadvic’s suggestion

But the client came up with a better solution.
