Over-the-Shoulder Shampoo Tray
Shampoo trays are made of plastic and fit around an individual’s neck and shoulders while they lean back in their chair or wheelchair toward a sink. They have a raised edge to prevent water from spilling out or flowing over the sides and contoured edges that support the neck. Caregivers then shower the individual’s hair by running water from a hand shower over the tray and down onto the person’s head and back into the sink. These trays are compact and lightweight to diminish awkward bending for individuals with limited motion and reduce back strain for caregivers. They are latex free and can be cleansed with soap or household disinfectant. Some include 35″ straps that wrap around the client’s forearm to stabilize the tray. Some are reversible.
Shoulder-Mounted Shampoo Tray
A shoulder-mounted shampoo tray allows individuals to receive a wash without having to leave their wheelchair or chair. The plastic tray fits around the neck and onto the shoulders of a person, while they lean back toward the sink for hair washing.

Some trays are designed with flexible rubber facing that surrounds the tray and neck opening to provide superior comfort for both the individual being washed and the caregiver. They also include contoured sides to support the neck. These trays are easy to clean and can be used while the person is sitting in a chair or wheelchair. They diminish awkward bending for the individual and reduce back strain for caregivers. They are latex free and can be cleansed with soap or household disinfectant. Some trays are even dishwasher safe.
