Our bather-centric ethos is clear to see, yet protecting caregivers is equally paramount to us.
The risk of musculoskeletal injury continues to intensify as the challenges of moving and handling increase. Patients and residents are presenting more complex needs and bariatric bathers are becoming commonplace. This is why our wet rooms encompass multiple design facets that minimise the risk of back and muscle strain when assisting semi-ambulant bathers.
Transfers from wheelchairs and hoists are efficient and seamless so control and safety is easier to deliver. As carers are not distracted by spatial complications or non-intuitive controls, higher quality care and client engagement is possible. This, in turn, promotes better bather wellbeing and task satisfaction for all care staff.
Effective hygiene is also essential for bathers as well as carers. This is why many fixtures within the Gainsborough range encompass Biocote antimicrobial protection. This integrated technology cannot be wiped or worn away and delivers 99.9%, 24/7 lifetime protection against many harmful microbes.
