A shower/changing bed that makes changing and personal care comfortable and safe
Seniors and people with mobility disabilities may need support for changing and personal care, and the shower/changing bed is an excellent assistive aid for these situations. The users lie safely and comfortably on the flexible slats while the caregivers can work in ergonomic and healthy positions.
The carer can adjust the shower/changing bed to the desired height using the electrical height adjustment. It makes it possible to lower the nursing bench to a suitable level for transferring a user onto the bed. When the user lies safely on the bench, the carer can raise it to an appropriate working height.
The ergonomic design improves the work environment for the caregivers
ROPOX shower/changing benches are very comfortable for the user, and they also provide an improved work environment for the carers.
The nursing bench has turnable slats made of soft, flexible PUR foam. The top side of the slats is soft and curves slightly towards the middle, which makes them suitable for situations where the user does not need to turn as the body naturally will be positioned on the centre of the slats.
The other side of the slats is flatter and curve slightly upwards on the middle. When the user lies on this side of the slats, it will be easier for the carers to turn the user on the side, e.g., when changing clothes.
As the two sides of the slats curve slightly up and down on the middle, the carers can use them as support when working by the nursing bench, and they also minimise the number of heavy lifts. The slats’ design gently guides the user to lie in the most convenient position with regards to the caregivers’ work environment.
Flexible and cleaning-friendly
To fit out the bathroom or changing room in an optimum way, the shower/changing bed is designed so it is easy to fold up, when it is not in use.
Naturally, the design is also cleaning-friendly. The slats and the water collection tray have soft, smooth surfaces with rounded corners without any dirt traps and this makes it easier to maintain a high hygiene level.
Electrical height adjustment
The shower/changing bed has electrical height adjustment, and you set the height using a practical hand control. This way you can lower and raise the nursing bench with just one hand.
The changing bed has a height adjustment range of 70 cm from 30-100 cm. This means that the bed can be lowered to a height where the carers can transfer a user onto the bed smoothly and gently. It makes the user feel safer and more comfortable, and it also minimizes the physical strain for the carer and gives them a better work environment.
Shower/changing beds for children and adults with mobility disabilities
The nursing bench is available in sizes for children and adults, and there are three models which all come with or without a tiltable back support.
There is one model with four slats that is 146 cm long, one model with five slats that is 178 cm long and a model with six slats that is 210 cm long.
No matter which model you prefer, it is of course tested and approved according to relevant standards and you can be certain that your shower/changing bed is both durable and safe in use.
