Details

Tittle:
Cost effective retrofittable bath safety aid
Summary:
A UK bathroom equipment developer has designed, patented and produced a product which unlike others on the market can aid entry into and out of the bath using a cost-effective and straightforward approach. It provides safety for users moving over the bath edge without the necessity for complex mechanisms. The company seeks partners in the bathroom and hospitality sectors to collaborate on further development for their needs or to license the design.
Description:
The product described is aimed at the care of elderly and less mobile guests at home, in hotels, and in other residential and care environments to provide a safe and cost effective method of entering and exiting a bath without the need for complex equipment or tooling.

The product provides a cost effective method of converting a standard bathroom suite using a retrofittable frame that can provide a safer method of moving in and out of the bath. The design avoids the expense and disruption of having a walk in bath installed and it can be easily fitted over an existing bath with no requirement for hoisting or having to sit on a swing chair.

The design does not create a clinical hospital look as is the case with some other devices and once fitted the bathroom remains suitable for all users, whether experiencing difficulties with mobility or not, thus providing maximum room space usage.

The company seeks partners looking to license and further co-develop the design for use in their market.
Advantages and Innovations:
As far as the company is aware there are no other products on the market that use a simple step or bar frame. Here there is no need for the bath to be modified itself, only simple connectors are required. The product has a non-clinical appearance compared with others on the market and the design is also intended to be used by those without any mobility issues.

Compared with other products on the market:

i) bath swing seats have the disadvantage of unwanted movement and the requirement to still initially have to move over the bath edge unassisted.
ii) walk in baths are good but expensive to install.
iii) hoists are complex and require effort to operate.
