Closomat helps alleviate pressure on health and social care

  • 7 Aug 2017

Closomat is alleviating the pressure on health and social care by helping to create accessible homes.

Robin Tuffley, Closomat marketing manager says, “The bathroom is the most commonly adapted space. Our equipment is proven to enable people to be discharged from hospital without the need to provide as much, or any, care support. And research shows people who are enabled to live independently, remain in their own homes, require less social care support, and have better health and wellbeing, reducing pressure on health services.”

With only 7% of homes in England offering minimum accessibility features according to Habinteg, it is calling for the Government to make accessible and adaptable homes the default standard for new build.

The Closomat Palma Vita wash & dry toilet features flush pads on either side of the cistern in addition to integrated douching and drying.

Closomat is offering either separate grab and support rails, or versions which can be clip-fixed to a support track, and a range of ceiling track hoists that can be configured to enable moving of the user from one room to another, and/or any point within a room.

The company has published a white paper- Design Guidance & Considerations for an Accessible Toilet/Wetroom- which can be downloaded free of charge from its website.
