Guide To Disabled Baths | More Ability
Published: 22 October 2015
Bespoke bathing solutions are reserved for those with very limited mobility often a result of an illness or disability / condition affecting the muscles and limbs.
A number of solutions are available however each needs to be tailored towards the condition in which it is anticipated to help – in essence presented solutions should be a result of the user and their individual needs.
Unlike a typical ‘walk-in bath’ these bespoke baths are specialist solutions which are often a medical requirement to help a carer’ assist and bath someone with a specific condition. In our experience these conditions include, but are not limited to; Muscular Dystrophy, Cerebral Palsy, Severe & Deteriorating Motor Neurone Disease and Loss of Limb & Amputee’s.
Bespoke bathing solutions are designed to take the stress and strain away from a carer whilst also making bath time a relaxing and enjoyable experience for the user. Options include:
- Therapeutic Sensory baths
If you’re thinking of installing or require a bespoke bathing solution we would recommend speaking with a healthcare professional, preferable an OT, who will assess your needs and requirements and should also be able to point you in the direction of a credible supplier & installer.
Furthermore a bathroom solutions specialist, like ourselves, will also be able to offer you unparalleled help and advice with regards to options available that meet specific medical requirements. It is also crucial that any proposed solution is tried and tested before being purchased. You need to be 100% sure the suggested solution will meet all the wants and needs of those it effects. Installation is also a strong focal point as certain accreditations and certificates are required to fit and install such equipment.
