Closomat has introduced a new solution to enable stylish options to support people as they begin to require additional care in daily life.
The company now offers a complete package to create a bathroom that can be easily changed to accommodate assistive technology. The package can be accessed as a whole, or by individual components.
The Closomat bathroom focuses on the new look Vita range of wash & dry toilets. It allows the addition of a rail system, a static or height-adjustable washbasin, grab rails, support arms, changing bench and a shower seat.
In addition, a complimentary X/Y track hoist system can be ceiling-mounted, or supported on slimline gantry legs, to facilitate transfer around the room.
Closomat marketing manager, Robin Tuffley explains: “It makes sense, especially when developing properties particularly for supported, assisted living, to design in, from the outset, the flexibility to cost-efficiently alter and adapt the room to accommodate the occupant’s changing needs.”
The Closomat Vita range of wash & dry toilets look like, and can be used as, conventional WCs, yet they feature integral washing and drying.
The range encompasses the floor-mounted Palma Vita, the wall-hung Lima Vita and height adjustable Lima Lifter. A range of accessories enables tailoring of the toilet initially or retrospectively to each user’s needs.
