Gainsborough Specialist Bathrooms will be demonstrating the significant care and commercial benefits associated with its flagship power-assisted Gentona bath at The Care Show.
Care Show – stand C30, 9-10 October, NEC, Birmingham
Incorporating the latest innovations
The Gentona bath
With three decades of specialist manufacturing experience, the Gentona bath from Gainsborough is proven to synergise maximum care, safety and dignity for disabled bathers. It enhances moving and handling best practice, offers ultra-efficiency and dependable performance.
Every 5th bathing cycle – effectively free
Gainsborough understands the ever-evolving challenges in today’s long term and acute care facilities. Hence its Gentona bath is selected by astute healthcare providers to uphold high CQC excellence and ensure optimum value from budget expenditure. With every fifth bathing cycle effectively free, through water and energy saving design features, the Gentona represents a significant cost reduction especially over multiple bathrooms. Combined with pioneering BioCote technology built-in, which delivers 99.9% 24/7 protection against harmful Influenza H1N1, E.coli, Salmonella and antibiotic resistance microbes, the Gentona is a trusted solution to safeguard sustainable quality care.
Personal care without manual handling
The Gentona’s powered variable height ensures carers can administer personal care at safe working heights whilst the powered bather transfer seat negates the need for manual handling. The potential for resident falls and the risk of musculoskeletal injury for carers during transfers is reduced – overall facilitating a more positive and rewarding bathing experience. In terms of dementia care, the hi-lo Gentona is ideal for bathers who struggle with modesty, unfamiliarity and patience. Special options such as Hydrotherapy, Chromatherapy and Bluetooth sound can be installed to promote engagement and therapy.
Hamberley Care Homes regards Gainsborough Specialist Bathrooms and its Gentona bath as ‘the default choice’ in specialist baths. Commenting upon the three Gentonas recently installed in their new flagship care home,
