Custom Padded Designs and Bridging Systems Gallery
Duramed Designs has developed several different types of custom padded toilet seat designs and bridging systems to accommodate any requirement. Here is a collection of some past custom projects. These examples show solutions to some challenging cases.

This client transferred to the center pad from a wheelchair with the help of a floor to ceiling pole.
The power chair had only enough room to park beside the bench. The bridge also provided access to the raised toilet seat.
The large walker used could not get close to the shower stall. This offset extension was also useful beside the sink.
