Healthcare technology firm Komodo Healthcare has launched a four-in-one electronic hygiene chair to increase the dignity and independence of those with reduced mobility.
The Komodo Chair combines a stand-alone toilet/commode, a stand and assist raiser, a shower chair and electronic variable height.
Its accessories and features, which include a lightweight aluminium frame, swing-away footrests, headrest and armrests, are designed with comfort and safety in mind.
Tom Reaney, Sales Director at Komodo Healthcare, says that the chair represents an exciting new opportunity in the market.
“To offer a game-changing product in an established market is always exciting, however, it is more pleasing to offer a product that has the potential to significantly enhance the quality of life of both users and caregivers.”
A patent protected movement mechanism underpins the design of the chair, according to the firm, which has been designed to mimic the movements of an individual, therefore feeling familiar and safer for the user.
Four independent actuators mean there is a smooth, transition as a stand assist, reducing the need to lift. This, combined with the height adjustability, means that the chair can mimic the motion of an individual standing up to help re-engage leg muscles.
Electronic variable height makes hygiene and cleaning far more accessible and dignified, while allowing independence for end-users to carry-out independent tasks.
The shower recline function is stable, secure, and comfortable, allowing showering and other hygiene tasks to be carried out with ease.
By enabling easier single-handed cleaning, with no need for physical strain on the caregiver, dignity is significantly maintained.
Tom Reaney adds: “Combining four products into one in such a way has significant benefits, making a seamless experience for the caregiver when carrying out hygiene tasks, but also increasing the quality of care, due to the need for only one chair.
“On our demonstrations so far, occupational therapists have been really impressed with how easy and efficient the chair makes routine hygiene tasks and they can clearly see how the chair can enhance the quality of life for both end-user and caregiver.”
