About the solution

George has with experience in the welding trade, and has been working on various accessories designed to make his nephew's life easier.

This sink stand is mainly an adaptation of the height of the steps to the length of Yvan’s legs, and is safe to use and store.

You can check the instructions and materials below:
• The walking height was calculated according to the traditional formula (2 x walking height + walking depth) and this should give a dimension between 61 and 65 cm (for the height of an adult leg). In the case of the grandstand, it was calculated according to a child's leg, which gives an easy-to-use staircase with a minimum drop risk.
• Two wheels are placed at the front of the grandstand to allow for stability.
• Raw wood has only been sanded (once wet, natural wood is less slippery than wood varnished or painted).
• All edges have been rounded and all fixings are made by gluing and screws.
• The grandstand is placed against the sink, the steps being directed to the left or right of the sink.

Materials :
• Boards
• 2 wheels with a diameter of 40 mm
• Wood screws of 3.5 x 30 mm
• wood glue

About the author

George, from Belgium, created a sink stand for his nephew Yvan, who was born with disproportionate dwarfism. He invented this device because it was hard for Yvan to access several everyday objects, including the bathroom sink.
