The one thing that users with impaired mobility dread, is falling while taking a shower or bath. When their wish it to stay independent during their hygiene routine, to fall and be injured, is their worst nightmare. Being able to shower independently when you have a disability that affects your mobility, can prove a real struggle, and if you’re unsteady on your feet, it can also increase the risk of falls.
Difficulty using the toilet is an all too common problem for users who have undergone recent surgery such as a hip or knee replacement, or for anyone with impaired mobility or those that may suffer with balance issues.
A toilet that is positioned too low to the ground can mean that the user may struggle to sit or stand while going to the bathroom which can prove both uncomfortable and dangerous.
The bathroom can be one of the most dangerous places in the home, especially if you’re partially disabled or you suffer with limited mobility.
