    Hi Doug, sorry to hear you fell. I have that same shower chair as its one supplied by NHS however I am looking to buy a bio bidet(its a seat that fits over a regular toilet but it washes your bits and dries you after you have done the deed in the loo .However that shower chair doesn't fit over a bio bidet and the one I need is £800 pound.In discussion with my occupational therapist as won't buy the bio bidet until I know if the bio bidet compatible shower chair is available on NHS or funding can be offered via MND Association. Hope you find your shower chair helps you.Guess you have a lifeline system to summons help. Best wishes Mary

    No problem as you’d have a huge flush.

    Thanks Ellie

    My right ankle is slightly sore on the side where I must have knocked it when falling - but nothing serious.

    I'm taking it easy today, but feel a lot better generally.

    Love

    Doug

    Morning Doug - any soreness today?

    Yes, they're for the bowl - it's more common for the bowl to slide into grooves under the seat, leaving the front opening fully accessible to wash one's bits! So glad you're sorted 😍

    Love Ellie.

    Thank you Ellie for your concern over my ladies' happiness. Initially, I didn't understand which bracket you meant. Thankfully it's not springy. It's there to support the front rim of a commode bowl if fitted.

    You'd think that it would make it easier to manoeuvre over the loo if the handles could be rotated forwards. I sometimes wonder if the designers ever try them out.

    It won't be your fingers that'll be crossed if that metal bracket is springy 🤭🤭

    Thanks Ellie.

    Denise - The guy who brought it checked and said it clears the loo and cistern. Not tried it yet. Fingers crossed!

    I would have thought the cistern would get in the way. Or the back of the chair. 🤔

    Looks normal to me, can't see any modifications 🤔

    Can't figure out how far back that metal bracket is - do you think it'll get in the way?

    Safe days ahead Doug 😘

    Love Ellie.

    Here it is. Supplied in 7 hours.

    I can be used as a commode.

    Kate - thank you. I know what you mean. I think that's what happened this morning.
