A unique offering is supporting easy accessorization to ‘future-proof’ intimate care.
Closomat’s brand-leading Palma Vita is the only shower toilet on the market in the UK that offers a range of integrated support systems. The various options can all be added initially or retrospectively, to help ensure the user is safe and secure whilst using the WC, whether getting on, off or sitting on it, whatever their age or size.
Choices include integrated fold-down support arms, close proximity support arms, lateral supports, and lap straps, plus a selection of specialist paediatric and bariatric solutions. Coupled with the Closomat’s integral douching and drying facilities which efficiently and consistently clean the user’s bottom after ‘going’, the systems give everyone the ability to sit and relax when toileting, without any need to execute any movement which might impinge on their stability and security.
“Almost everyone has overbalanced when using the WC, at least once in their life,” says Robin Tuffley, Closomat marketing manager. “Statistics indicate that almost 15% of non fatal falls in the bathroom happen when using the toilet. It is also widely acknowledged that ensuring an environment or activity is safe helps eliminate the fear factor, particularly with older or less mobile people, giving them the reassurance to do something without relying on care support. The support systems spare having to reach for a grab rail, or lean to/on a washbasin. The risk factor is cut to a minimum.
“It’s about enabling people to retain their dignity and independence, to go to the toilet without help, with peace of mind, for as long as possible.”
The ability to specify different support systems- at the outset or as user’s needs change- is just one of the unique features of Closomat. It is the only company in its sector based in Britain, with UK manufacture, sales, service and support teams; it also uniquely has in-house a nationwide team of dedicated engineers, to ensure timely install, commissioning, upgrade, service, maintenance and remedials.
