This project has been created to help elder or people with physical disabilities. The help consists on getting easier the access to the shower. To reach our purpose, we realized a really innovative idea.
Our idea is based on a door which rotates 90 degrees with respect to a lateral axis. In that door there is attached a chair to get easier the shower.
When the user is in front of the opened door it would be easier for him or her to reach the chair which is added on the door, after that when the door is closed the user would be in the perfect position to get washed in his or her own. A CAD model was developed to make this design and also evaluate its resistance and safety.
