Gainsborough Specialist Bathrooms will make its return to the Care Show this week, showcasing its expertise in antimicrobial assisted bathing solutions and accessible wet rooms.
The manufacturer will present live displays of its Gentona and Sentes baths at stand C32 at the show, which begins at the NEC, Birmingham today.
The flagship Gentona is a power-assisted solution that facilitates safe and controlled transfers of bathers in and out of the bath, so the risk of falls is reduced.
Its transfer seat lifts, rotates and lowers users so that manual handling by carers is eliminated – ensuring protection against musculoskeletal injury. Through variable height technology the Gentona is also designed to provide safer working heights for carers with greater eye-level engagement.
The Gentona bath has been proven to reduce utility consumption and operational time by 20% – resulting in every fifth bathing cycle being free. Add to this in-built BioCote, which provides 24/7 99.9% antimicrobial protection, the Gentona is safeguarding quality care and delivering sustainability on an unprecedented level.
For more complex bather requirements, the Sentes bath is designed to provide an ultra-efficient, power reclining solution.
Its ergonomics and moulded seat help to improve postural control – enhancing bathing comfort.
The vertical-raising, side-entry door also ensures easy-access for bathers, making transfers safer and simpler for care staff, according to the manufacturer.
With its quick-fill technology and low water usage, it reduces time between refills, allowing carers to focus on the needs of bathers.
The water and energy efficient Sentes has a SWL of 205kg, thermostatic controls and is available with a range of sensory options including Bluetooth sound, hydrotherapy and chromotherapy.
