Showerchairs are designed for people who require
seating support when bathing or showering. The showerchair allows someone
who is unsteady on their feet the ability to shower without help. Such
manufacturers are Invacare, Activeaid, Nova, Guardian, Drive Medical,
Commodes: There are many commode designs, such as
bedside commodes, including commodes that are designed to fit over the
toilet, drop arm, folding/traveling, extra wide, heavy duty and commodes
for bariatric needs. All-in-one (3-in-1) bedside commodes, can be used
to assist a person who has difficulty in walking to the bathroom by bringing
the toilet into the bedroom. This type of commode can also be used over
an existing toilet, like a raised toilet seat, which raises the seat height
and assists the user in standing.
Commodes range from economy, folding, high back, discreet,
shower, mobile and wheelchair commodes from manufactures such as: Activeaid,
Sunrise Medical, Chiltern, Savanah, Merlin.
Bath Lifts and Hoists: Those who find it difficult
to use a bath, may wish to try out a bath lift or hoist. Many are powered
and can either be operated independently, or by a carer to make the task
of assisting someone easier and safer, thus reducing the carer's risk
of back injury. The controls are air operated, usually on a handset, and
are therefore safe if accidentally immersed. Although expensive, a hoist
or lift may be more cost effective than installing a special bath or shower.
