On stand N11057 at Naidex, Ropox will be showcasing examples from its comprehensive range of kitchen and bathroom solutions, which have been designed to be as user friendly as possible for people living with a reduced level of mobility and independence.

“Naidex provides us with the perfect opportunity to engage with end users and their carers along with healthcare professionals and demonstrate our range of kitchen and bathroom solutions in a relaxed and friendly environment,” commented Ropox’s Peter Davies.

For visitors looking for accessible kitchens, Ropox will be exhibiting a small example of its Flexi motorised worktop system.

The Flexi worktop system is available in a choice of lengths up to three metres and can be used with any worktop, which can be inset with a sink, hob or just used for food preparation. The 300mm height adjustment provides a worktop height range of 690mm to 990mm, making it suitable for most wheelchair users and can be finished in almost any colour and material to ensure it will blend in with most kitchen styles.

Complementing the frame will be an example from the Ropox range of adjustable wall units. Cupboard storage is an issue in many kitchens, highlights Ropox, and while there may be a certain amount of space at ground level, raised cupboards can often be out of reach for people with restricted mobility.

However, Ropox’s range of wall cabinets go to the user, eliminating this issue. On show will be the Verti Inside, which can be retro fitted within the shell of an existing cupboard unit, making it invisible from the outside. The electric shelves drop through the bottom of the unit via a button to enable the user to access plates, tins, glassware etc.

Additionally, the company will be exhibiting several products from its bathroom portfolio. The Ropox height adjustable shower changing bed can be folded up when not in use and the height can be set to the ideal level for user and carer with the easy-to-operate adjustment control.

To assist with toileting, Ropox has developed the Ropox Toilet Lifter, which lifts and lowers the user to and from a standing position. The ergonomic design of the unit and the integrated height adjustable arms ensure it is both easy to use and clean and helps the user maintain their dignity.

Alongside the Toilet Lifter will be a Swing Basin and two adjustable height basins – the Vanity and Standardline.

The Swing Basin has been designed to meet the needs of the user and carer. It can be easily moved to within easy reach of the person on the toilet or in their wheelchair as it can swing and rotate 180˚ and the oval design allows it to be accessed from the front or side.

For users not requiring such an adjustable basin, the VanityLine and StandardLine are more suitable options. Both models are height adjustable and incorporate enough legroom for wheelchair users to comfortably access the basin.

Naidex 2019 takes place from the 26th-27th March at the NEC in Birmingham.
