The problem of designing and providing a cost-efficient, accessible toileting or bathing facility is simplified with a new approach from Total Hygiene.

Personal hygiene access and use is a marker of human rights and dignity. Statistics show some 10.5million- ie one in six- people in the UK have a limiting long-term illness which impinges on their daily life. The most common limitation is mobility, which includes the ability to undertake personal hygiene unaided.

As a result, Total Hygiene, the UK’s leading manufacturer and supplier of toileting aids for the disabled, has applied more than 40 years’ experience in improving hygiene, independence and dignity for the less able to create a complete package from design to supply of fittings for washrooms, wetrooms and bathrooms, whereby a carefully equipped room can cater for almost every bodily cleansing requirement regardless of the user’s ability, age or height.

The Complete Bathroom Collection encompasses bidet toilets, lifters, hoists, body driers, height adjustable baths, height adjustable basins, height adjustable changing tables and height adjustable shower seats, to enable, from one single source of supply, creation of a well functioning room that enables the user to bathe or toilet with optimum dignity, independence and hygiene.

Geoff Richardson, Total Hygiene Sales Director, explained the rationale, “Inclusivity and accessibility are growing issues in society. The Behind Closed Doors campaign, endorsed by the Royal College of Nursing, maintains that all people, whatever their age and physical ability, should be able to choose and use the toilet in private, and there must be sufficient toilets and equipment available to achieve this. We fully support this, but would extend it beyond toileting, to encompass washing, bathing and showering.

“No two people, even if they share an affliction, are the same, but every person merits the basic right to toilet and maintain personal hygiene with dignity and privacy. Our heritage in dealing with the practical considerations involved put us in a prime position to work in partnership to help design, specify and equip, within budgetary constraints, a room where people can perform basic bodily functions hygienically and with dignity, using equipment which can be adjusted to individual needs, whether accommodating an active toddler, someone with a sprained limb or a wheelchair-bound adult with no muscle control and impaired mental capacity, whether in a person’s home or a multi-user public building.

“And in today’s working environment where everyone’s time is precious, it simplifies the whole process if one point of contact can help design, then supply and commission all the equipment, ensuring every element functions effectively to create the optimum combined end result.”

Total Hygiene has already installed over 30,000 of its brand-leading Clos-o-Mat automatic bidet toilets in the UK, in locations from individual homes to hospitals. Clos-o-Mat bidet toilets- the only units of their kind developed specifically for the disabled and which in one unit provide conventional WC with an integral douche to cleanse and air drier- have already been installed in locations as diverse as individual homes, boats, hospitals, schools and universities, hotels, shopping centres and tourist attractions.
