CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To provide a custom adaptation of a frame for bath insert for a child with cerebral palsy. A Sunburst bath insert was purchased and a frame to mount this over the existing bath was built. A wooden model to test the fit and comfort of the proposed frame was created. Once fine-tuned, it was built by a local supplier with square stainless steel tube, which would not corrode when it gets wet. The frame fits snugly to the top of the existing bath, and has adjustable bolts to lock it to the side of the bath as to be easily installed or removed as needed. The legs of the frame and the ends of the bolts all have rubber caps to prevent damage to the bath. The frame required precise fitting into the top flanges of the Sunburst bath, which is secured to the frame with small bolts and wing nuts so it too would be simple to install and remove. The Sunburst is filled using a flexible shower hose from the bath taps, and an overflow was added so the water level in the insert would not rise too high. TITLE: Bathing Noah. JOURNAL: TAD Journal.
