Hello everyone, a friend suggested this might be a good place to ask my question; can anyone recommend fastenings or restraints capable of keeping an infirm elderly person from jumping off the toilet before I’m satisfied he’s finished?
Until now I’ve been using a non-branded superglue, but this has recently started to cause the skin on the back of his thighs to come away, and I want to avoid the high costs of antiseptic cream that has come as a result.
I thought of attaching metal clamps to the seat which would strap around the thigh, but on reflection these may become rusty after repeated use.
Is a fabric belt preferable, or perhaps a strong tape? If you’ve any suggestions I’d be grateful to receive them!
