CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To enable a teenage girl with short stature to independently flush a toilet with a push-button flush mechanism. A long lever was fashioned that enables the user to operate both the full- and half-flush buttons. The device consists of a horizontal stainless steel rod housed in a stainless steel casing. At one end, the rod is fitted with a long, flat handle which the user is able to push. The other end of the rod is bent into a vertical position and the point, which is covered with a rubber cap, depresses the flush button when the user operates the lever. The device was mounted by screwing it into a wooden block attached to the wall that keeps the unit in position. TITLE: Bathroom Access. JOURNAL: TAD Journal.
