Abacus, which supplies accessible bathing solutions for disabled bathers, will be unveiling the latest addition to its range at the OT Show next month.
The new Gemini 2000 variable height bath is longer than the previous model by 300mm and is designed to provide future-proofed suitability for both paediatric and adult bathers.
The Gemini is Abacus’ flagship bath and is the result of an R&D project that promised higher levels of care.
The Gemini 2000 has been designed to be modular so. it can be transported in sections and assembled onsite.
This significantly reduces access issues and opens up the opportunity for more users to benefit from ownership.
To continually provide appropriate bathing space for growing users, the bath has foot and back boards that can be repositioned dependant on the required leg room.
It encompasses the latest safety technology with obstruction sensors to ensure safe lowering and the platform has a locking mechanism in the upright position.
Peter Eckhardt, CEO of the Gainsborough Healthcare Group, said: “As our flagship paediatric assisted bathing brand, Abacus is a proven choice for children who require additional support.
“However with the introduction of the Gemini 2000, we are now able to offer a more spacious solution that is appropriate for larger teenagers and adults.
“This innovation reiterates our bather-centric approach and our focus on meeting individual requirements as needs change.
“The new two-metre long Gemini is truly future proof and promises to deliver life enhancing bathing to more disabled bathers than ever before.”
