Commode seat model wheelchair


Title
Commode seat model wheelchair
Description
When people are sick or disabled, it is often difficult for them to get up and walk to a restroom. While in a hospital, assisted living facility, or even in the home, many patients use bed pans and urinals. However, some patients use a wheelchair with the commode built into it. This commode seat model wheelchair was made by the Colson Corporation in the first half of the twentieth century. The wheelchair was built using wooden panels, instead of a solid piece of wood, so that it would not warp.
