Author: Kristina Magathova Date Posted:11 September 2018
A mobile shower commode allows users to go to the toilet or showering without having to get up from sitting down. It allows them to do personal hygiene efficiently and with dignity. Mobile shower commodes also prevent injuries to carers as they can otherwise strain their back trying to lift their patient or slip on wet floors.
The majority of shower commodes are simply shower seats that have wheels on them along with arms that can either be adjusted or fixed, to help with transfers. Some would have commode bowls for toileting purposes. Mobile shower commodes are generally made from either plastic or stainless steel to ensure that they last for long periods of time without breaking down and also have padded seats for added comfort.
