New Toilet Aid Invented April 29 2009

car-accident

June 9, 2006 was a day I will never forget.  A car accident changed the course of my life entirely. 

Leaving the hospital a week later with a broken back, I experienced humiliation and frustration as others assisted in keeping me clean. 

I was restricted to the house for weeks due to unpredictable bathroom visits and no adequate toilet aid.  The occupational therapists had little to offer that was convenient and sanitary; therefore, I began creating my own tool, in hopes of regaining independence and personal dignity. 

The FreedomWand is the result of this struggle.  Next time an occupational therapist is asked, "How do I reach...?" they will have a much better answer!
