Dream bathroom for Brooke, age 7
A dream bathroom has been created for a seven year old girl with Dystonic Cerebral Palsy fitted out with adjustable products from Pressalit.
Brooke’s parents first saw the range of bathroom equipment at the Naidex exhibition, impressed with both the quality and flexibility. So when they came to making much needed adaptations to their house for Brooke, they turned to Pressalit.
”There was only one choice for us, and that was Pressalit,” says Jonathan, Brooke’s dad. ”Our three year project to adapt our house for Brooke has involved the widening of doors and halls, and importantly the installation of a wetroom. She really adores her new wetroom, and even has space to play with her toys in the shower area.
”Getting everything right first time, and ensuring it will meet Brooke’s needs for future years, has been an important part of the work.
”We have been blown away with the quality of the Pressalit products. The feel and design of each item is superb.”
The family installed the Pressalit horizontal Plus track system, with a Matrix basin with integral hand support; toilet support arms; electric shower chair, and corner grab rails with shower head holders.
”At 7 years of age it’s so important for a child to be independent and confident,” says Andrew Lowndes of Pressalit. ”We are thrilled that our products have made a world of difference to Brooke and her parents. Her determination to get on in life is an inspiration to all those around her.”
