Bathroom for the disabled. Elderly man demonstrates a static floor-fixed hoist, in a bathroom converted for use by a disabled person. The mechanical hoist has a chair attachment which can be raised and lowered, and swivelled round. This allows the disabled person to transfer from a wheelchair to the hoist chair, and so maneuver into the bath. With a pan the chair may also be used as a temporary toilet.
