Pressalit launches flexible new mobile shower change trolley
Accessible bathroom specialist Pressalit has introduced a new height-adjustable Shower Change Trolley, suitable for both adult and child environments in Changing Places facilities, schools or institutions.
The Scandinavian designer says that it has designed a product that offers both safety and comfort for changing and assisted showering. Innovative features such as foldable safety rails on all four sides and a vertical tilt mechanism help users and their carers.
Andrew Lowndes, UK and Ireland Sales Manager for Pressalit, said: “Great care has been put into the design of the new Shower Change Trolley to ensure it not only provides a safe and secure changing and showering trolley, but with its flexibility allows users and their carers to adapt easily to individual situations.”
The shower and changing trolley combines a height-adjustable changing table, with the option to use as a waterproof shower trolley, making it a valuable addition to accessible or Changing Places bathrooms, in wet or dry environments.
According to Pressalit, introducing foldable safety rails at the head and foot of the table, as well as on both sides, improves access for two or more carers to assist a user at the same time.
Its easy-to-fold rails not only provide security for the patient and help prevent falls, they can promote a greater sense of ease and calm by providing a real visible definition of space. The contoured laminate rails feature black trim edges to aid the visual definition, with integrated grab handles.
Waterproof, non-slip, and quick-drying, the durable mattress is produced from PVS-coated fabric, providing a comfortable lying surface, with gable ends acting as further security. With flexi-pipe and drainage, the shower water runs off and away quickly and efficiently.
The free-standing trolley will fit neatly into the bathroom, according to Pressalit. It can be moved into position next to the shower when needed. Its large diameter wheels ensure easy manoeuvrability while the user is lying on the bed. The non-slip press-down foot pedals also provide a secure central locking system across all four wheels.
Its metal frame is lifted off the floor so that the wheels and lower frame of a mobile hoist can fit underneath if required.
With a height range of 550mm-950mm, carers can adjust the table to suit their personal work preferences, including wheelchair transfer and minimising inappropriate lifts. It features a gentle vertical tilt, with two secure, telescopic legs. As well as user comfort, the tilt allows for efficient water egress. The height-adjustable table is powered by an easy to reach battery with an intuitive hand control.
Says Andrew: “This is an excellent addition to the Pressalit range. Not just another blue trolley, its bespoke design has a flexible approach to care from start to finish.”https://thiis.co.uk/pressalit-launches-flexible-new-mobile-shower-change-trolley/https://i1.wp.com/thiis.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/MSCT-Changing-Place-copy.jpg?fit=900%2C636&ssl=1https://i1.wp.com/thiis.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/MSCT-Changing-Place-copy.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1NewsroomRetailer NewsSupplier NewsTrade Newsaccessible,Bathroom,change,changing places,Pressalit,show,trolleyAccessible bathroom specialist Pressalit has introduced a new height-adjustable Shower Change Trolley, suitable for both adult and child environments in Changing Places facilities, schools or institutions.
