Sentes reclining bath from Gainsborough delivers advanced postural stability

Gainsborough Specialist Bathrooms, Europe’s leading brand of specialist power baths for the healthcare sector, continues to meet complex bather needs with its reclining Sentes bathing solution.

The Sentes is an ultra-efficient reclining bathing system, suitable for long-term and acute care environments. Its reclining action and moulded seat help to improve postural control, enhancing bathing comfort and delivering the optimum blend of functionality and performance. The vertical-raising, side-entry door also ensures easy-access for bathers, making transfers safer and simpler for care staff.

From a design point of view, the Sentes provides:

  • Easy one-touch tilt with hoisting access
  • Reduced operational costs through smart water and power usage
  • BioCote antimicrobial technology built-in for 24/7 protection against microbes
  • Quick fill technology for faster bathing cycles
  • Impressive 205kg SWL
  • Safer moving and handling with reduced risk to carers and bathers
  • Optional Hydrotherapy, Chromotherapy and Bluetooth sound

The integrated BioCote protection in the Sentes is a major advantage for all healthcare providers. This world-leading silver-ion technology delivers advanced hygiene offering up to 99.9% 24/7 protection against a broad range of microbes, including bacteria, mould and even some viruses.

With its Sentes baths, the 64-bed luxurious Kings Lodge care home located in Camberley, Surrey, continues to provide utmost bathing support and hygiene. Offering a combination of high level residential and dementia care, Kings Lodge is a state-of-the-art facility which delivers client-centric bathing with moving and handling excellence.

Abbey, a senior carer at Kings Lodge, has been very impressed with the Sentes, both from a staff and resident point of view:

“The Sentes is nice and deep so residents can have a good soak and it gives effective postural support when reclined for individuals with complex needs. It is easily accessible from either side so I can provide personal care without compromising my back or posture.”

Offering the opportunity to bathe is a major benefit at Kings Lodge as it relaxes residents, improves well-being and enhances therapy sessions. The Sentes baths from Gainsborough Specialist Bathrooms have been deemed instrumental in safeguarding this approach to quality care.
