C-Chair / Bath chair

C-Chair
C-Chair

The C-Chair is a bath chair that is designed for the elderly and disabled. Unlike any ordinary bath chair, there’s a C-armrest around users whether walking or using assistive devices.
There are so many moves in the process of bathing(e.g., undress, take shampoo, take showerhead, dry off, dress, move to a wheelchair), even more challenging for the elderly and disabled. A general bath chair can only be seated on, but it can not be used flexibly and is rather inconvenient. I hope this design can combine flexibility with stability, break through the framework of the existing bath chair, and then assist people who really need help cordially.
