Total Hygiene Solution to helping achieve social model of disability
Removing the barriers that restrict independence for disabled people is made easier, at least in the bathroom, through options available from Clos-o-Mat. The company’s Palma Vita looks like, and can be used as, a conventional toilet, but has additional, integrated facilities which wash and dry the user instead of them wiping with paper. Its delivery of a consistent, efficient process gives greater cleanliness for all users, regardless of impairment, and can eliminate the need for carer assistance.
Bathroom Flexibility makes the world of difference to Blind Veterans UK
The ability to adapt their bathrooms to meet the needs of each resident has been fundamental at Blind Veterans UK’s centre in Ovingdean, Brighton in Sussex, where they have opted for height adjustable products from Pressalit Care. As part of a refurbishment of 14 ensuite bathrooms, height adjustable wash basins and shower chairs have been installed along with toilet support arms and shower rails.

Anti-scald experts install lifelong safety advice
Anti-scald bathroom product manufacturer Inta is encouraging the industry to remember the dangers of hot water, after a year that cast a spotlight on the dangers of Legionella, with several fatal and high-profile outbreaks of Legionnaires’ disease in the UK. The manufacturer, which produces a vast and varied range of cool bodied taps and showers alongside its best-selling thermostatic mixing valve (TMV) Intamix, is ramping up its anti-scald campaigning on the back of the outbreaks, after expressing concerns that messages about warding off the bacteria could increase the threat of scalding.
