Now, the brand-leading Clos-o-Mat Palma Vita automatic shower (wash and dry) toilet and latest addition to its accessory range mean almost 150,000 permutations exist, to enable precise tailoring to individuals’ exact requirements. Add in the wall-hung Clos-o-Mat Lima Vita and height adjustable Lima Lifter, and the variations increase by an additional 2000.
“No other automatic shower toilet has even a handful of options,” says sales director Mark Sadler. “Everyone is different, even people with the same disability will have differing requirements so they can go to the toilet with as much independence as possible. To us, it is therefore logical to offer as wide a choice of accessories as possible, so the toilet works in delivering independence and dignity, whether the user is male or female, adult or child, both initially, and as users’ needs change over time.”
The Palma Vita options include height, douche, seats, flush methods, and support systems, all of which can be fitted from the outset, or retro-fitted. The toilet can be used with shower chairs and toilet lifters too.
The Clos-o-Mat automatic shower toilet looks like- and can be used as- a conventional WC with the added benefit of in-built douching and drying. Appropriate specification of accessories minimises, or even negates, the user’s need for carer help, restoring dignity, independence and well-being. Thus anyone who may otherwise need the help of a carer to go to the toilet can do so with minimal, or no, assistance, whilst being assured of being consistently cleaned to a high standard every time.
The range of Clos-o-Mat accessories is detailed on the company’s website http://www.clos-o-mat.com/, so users and their Occupational Therapists can easily see the solutions, watch a video on how the unit works, and find out how other users have benefitted.
