Bathing & Toileting
Hexagon Healthcare is pleased to offer a range of bathing and toileting aids to suit all requirements and needs.
Grab rails are an essential in any bathroom or cloakroom if you are struggling with your stability. Hexagon Healthcare offer various lengths of rail and suction grab rails which can affix to wall tiles, or similar smooth surfaces.
People who don't find bathing as easy as they used to, and maybe perhaps struggle getting in and out of a traditional bath, could benefit from a simple bath seat which affixes to the base of the bath with sucker feet. These come in different heights – 6”, 8” or 12” depending how low in the bath the user wishes to sit. Obviously the use of a rail in conjunction with the seat works excellently.
Often bathing is too much and users will opt to use the shower over the bath. Hexagon Healthcare sell bathboards to facilitate sitting in comfort on the top of the bath whilst showering. This is particularly good for those who suffer with poor balance as there is no need to stand. The bathboard is slatted and fully sealed plastic so it isn’t too cold to sit on and the water can drain away easily. Bathboards come in a selection of sizes to suit all bath widths and an additional handle is also available.
However, difficulties getting into and out of the bath are quickly and most easily overcome when using a battery operated bath lift.
A bath lift operates by gently lowering the person to the bottom of the bath, letting them bathe conveniently in comfort, safe in the knowledge that the bathlift will raise them again. Bathlifts are easy to use and the waterproof hand control unit has an easy to use pressure sensitive up and down buttons. Bathlifts are lightweight, quick and easy to install and portable, and so can be used in different locations. The bathlift is both hygienic and comfortable to use. The cover is usually both non-slip and machine washable for convenience. The bathlift is attached to the bath using suckers, which ensure that the bathlift won't slide around the bath. The bathlift runs off a rechargeable battery, and comes with a charger.
Long handled sponges, toe washers, hair washing aids and lotion applicators are also available at Hexagon Healthcare.
Our toileting range includes commode chairs, raised toilet seats, toilet frames, and even porta potti toilets. Please do contact us to find out more specific information on any of the above
