A unique solution for bathing and transfer
Taking a daily bath or shower is an act that most people take for granted. However, for some people, notably those who are older or those with physical disabilities, bathing can be challenging. Logistically, getting in or out of a bath or stepping into and standing in a shower can be problematic. In addition to this there are individual preferences to consider regarding whether to bathe or shower, and the issue of maintaining independence and dignity.
Along with professional input from an Occupational Therapist, there are a number of possible adaptations that can be made to improve the bathing experience for an individual with limited mobility. Among those options is the Pacific Shower Bathing Trolley from Howard Wright, a unique solution for safe showering, bathing, and transfer.
The Pacific Shower Bathing Trolley is able to lower to a height of 555mm at the touch of a button on the electric control handset. The trolley can also raise to provide an ergonomic working height for caregivers ensuring any reaching or bending is kept to an absolute minimum. The unique electric tub sides lower around the patient platform, creating a smooth flat surface from which the individual can be transferred with ease. The tub itself is covered with soft, padded, waterproof polyurethane, ideal for those with delicate skin or disabilities that may cause unpredictable movement. The easy to clean one-piece seamless design encourages improved infection control.
Want to find out more? We are delighted to be able to bring you the Pacific Shower Bathing Trolley at this year’s Occupational Therapy Show on 24th and 25th November. Come along and see us at the Howard Wright stand (D75) – we look forward to welcoming you.
