New Toilet Aid Invented April 29 2009
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!
