With many years of experience in occupational therapy, Julie has an excellent and varied knowledge of the subject - making her the ideal person to explain more about the tools we offer and how they can help to live independently at home for longer .
Far from all standard accessible toilets and bathrooms meet the needs of people with disabilities or the needs of their carers and families. As a result, they are unable to participate in activities that many take for granted and cannot visit public places, such as shopping centers, recreational centers, hospitals, and transportation hubs.
It is time for a change.
What do you need to install a customizable space?
A height-adjustable dressing and shower table for adults
With its ergonomic design and electric height adjustment, the shower / changing table is an ideal solution for places where you want to change clothes easily. The soft and flexible slats offer a comfortable position for the user. The caregivers can easily adjust the couch to the most comfortable height when helping the user, and they can help wheelchair users to move smoothly to the table with minimal physical strain.
When the shower / changing table is not in use, it can be folded up to free up space. The shower bench has an electrical height adjustment of 30-100 cm, is approved for a maximum load of 220 kg and is available in different lengths (maximum length 210 cm).
To create the most handicap-friendly changing room, a height-adjustable washbasin is preferred and it should have generous space for the legs underneath.
In our range of washbasins, both the SlimLine and the SwingLine are height-adjustable and they are explicitly designed for people with disabilities.
SlimLine is a sleek and elegant and electrically height-adjustable wash basin in which the mirror and wash basin are combined in one unit. It has integrated grippers on the front and a smooth surface with rounded corners. Although slim and elegant, the washbasin is exceptionally durable and reliable in use.
The SwingLine washbasin (pictured) is perhaps the most user-friendly solution for wheelchair users and the visually impaired: it is manually adjustable in height, there is a lot of legroom and it is movable. You can pull the wash basin out of the unit and bring it within the user's reach, and you can push it to the corner of the room to create the largest possible turning area for wheelchair users.
A centrally placed toilet
There must be a peninsular toilet in a changing place to offer carers generous space on both sides to support the user. For people with limited mobility, the Toilet Lifter is an aid to go up and down the toilet. The toilet lift carefully lowers the user into sitting or standing position with the help of an electric height adjustment.
The tool has a smooth surface with nicely rounded corners. The hand control is easy to use and the user can adjust the height from 40.5 to 80.5 cm. The toilet lift can be combined with all standard hanging toilets and is approved for a maximum user load of 400 kg.
Toilet support arms
To increase the safety of the changing area, you can install toilet support arms that provide extra support when using the toilet.
For people with reduced mobility, the toilet arms serve as stable support when sitting and offer a firm grip to lean on when you return to a standing position or when you move to a wheelchair. The ergonomic design with a non-slip surface is comfortable to touch and you can adjust the support arms in height and at different angles to the needs of the user.
Wall supports and shower rails
Wall supports and shower rails in the right places ensure a safer environment. They offer that little bit extra to give the user a comfortable feeling when using the changing place. The rails and shower rails are designed with an even, smooth surface without contamination. This facilitates cleaning and also helps to maintain a high level of hygiene.
