CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To provide a customized toilet flushing device for use by person with osteoarthritis. The adapted mechanism is designed to operate the two flush buttons easily. A mainly stainless steel frame, with three supports holds the frame in place just above the two flush buttons. The three supports are a commercial suction cup which fastens to the tiled wall behind the toilet, and two vertical legs made of small-diameter pipe, that sit on the porcelain of the cistern. Two horizontal levers are mounted onto the frame, and below each lever is a small vertical extension located above each flush button. Each lever is fitted with a rubber grip, similar to bicycle handlebars. The device can be used to easily push the right lever down to operate the full flush button, and the left lever for the half-flush button. TITLE: Bathroom Assistance. JOURNAL: TAD Journal.
