Going to the toilet, but also showering and bathing, are very personal matters which people really prefer to do independently for as long as possible. In order to provide safe independence, for example for users in wheelchairs, the entire design of the bathroom as well as the availability of suitable support and safety equipment must be carefully considered.
Also for users with minor difficulties, such as reduced strength and balance, sitting down on and getting up from the toilet can be quite difficult. Taking a bath or a shower can be even more energy-consuming and risky. Simply increasing the height of the toilet and providing a little extra support in the right location can be sufficient to enable these users to visit the toilet independently without compromising safety. Having something sturdy to hold on to or being able to sit securely while showering but also while drying off, dressing and performing other body care activities, provides even further reduction of stress and significantly increases the safety in these daily situations.
