The article focuses on the use of plastic chains for problems encountered by people with disabilities in their travels. It relates the case of research chemist Harry Walker who has a complete T10 injury and has the idea of using it to have a portable, easy to use, and safe traveling experience. He hooked the chains in hotel ceilings to get him out of and move around in bed. He adds that a home made toilet seat that holds firmly to any kind of toilet is very useful for bowel care routine.
