Accessible shower supplier Contour Showers has developed a new shower system for people with limited mobility which claims to be the first ever electrically operated, 360º rotating shower tray.
The new TERN system allows users to thoroughly shower and dry themselves easily and in safety, as well as reducing showering time by up to half, the company says.
Operated by a wireless fob, the new level access shower tray is suited for showering with or without a carer’s involvement. Showering can take place seated and any transitions can be safely made beforehand, reducing the chance of slipping, falls or of lifting injuries.
The TERN shower tray also contains built-in Biomaster antibacterial product protection, designed to inhibit the growth of bacteria.
The company’s current range comprises more than 60 types and styles of shower tray incorporating Biomaster antibacterial technology. The protection is built-in to the shower trays during the manufacturing process.
When bacteria come into contact with the shower tray surface, Biomaster prevents them from growing, producing energy or replicating, therefore they die, keeping shower trays cleaner for longer.
Contour Showers’ marketing manager Marc Smith said the TERN system helps people to shower in confidence and safety.
“The fact that it also has built-in Biomaster antimicrobial product protection to help keep the shower tray fresher in-between regular cleaning practices is an added value, as it’s impossible to keep your shower clean at all times.”
