Answer – It’s an adaptive shampoo tray!

Water and soap drain away while sitting up

There’s nothing like clean hair to help someone feel refreshed.

screen-shot-2016-12-15-at-9-56-13-amThis shampoo tray aid is designed to remain and fit comfortably while allowing the individual to have their hair shampooed when sitting upright in any chair. The device has the ability to conform over and around any chair and should be placed between the back of the individual’s head and the shampoo sink behind them. It allows the individual to remain upright in a comfortable seated position — and is helpful to the hairdresser or caregiver because it can reduce the risk of back strain. This easy to use aid adjusts to most neck sizes with a buckle fastener and hook & loop Velcro straps for a comfortable fit.

Overall, it can be used anywhere – home, Salon, nursing home, rehabilitation center, and Hospital. It is competitively priced. Sit up in any chair & stand upright while washing hair.
