Closomat has detailed how its toilet tech can help people living with multiple sclerosis.
Of the common symptoms, the top two are balance & co-ordination, and bladder & bowel regulation which Closomat says explains why growing numbers of people diagnosed with the condition are turning to “toilet tech” to help live as independently as possible.
The company says its Palma Vita product overcomes any sensitivity about ‘disability’ aids due to its integrated douching and drying.
Closomat described it as ‘the only WC of its kind that can be accessorised initially and/or retrospectively, to accommodate changing needs.’
Karen Middlemiss from Kent MS Therapy Centre, commented: “Some people with MS struggle with motor skills and muscle spasticity, which can make personal hygiene a challenge at times. It is really important to anyone’s wellbeing to feel clean.”
Adding: “The Closomat is a very easy way for people to take care of those harder to reach areas.”
