Elman Lewis's invention sits upon an L-shaped frame with a set of strong wheels and a lightweight fork to steady it firmly on the floor. It rises up with a single spine, from which the seat dips down and can be adjusted in height. The gap between the backbone and the chair is optimal for use in the bath and the open supports allow for easy use of the toilet.
