The client has paraplegia resulting from a traumatic spinal cord injury. He lives in a rented house with an older style deep bath. He tried a commercial Bath Transfer Bench (over the side of the bath with 2 legs inside and 2 legs outside the bath), but it was too high to transfer from his wheelchair.

The modified bench in the bath

Tadvic modified the bench so 4 legs were within the bath and the bench was level with the top of the bath. Cross arms were added under the seat to stabilise the bench against the sides of the bath. Soft rubber was added to cover the transfer edge of the bath. The original vinyl covered seat and back panels were retained but dyed black at the request of the client.
