A wheelchair user in Leicestershire will be benefiting from the rapid installation of a Compact WashPod, mobile, disabled wetroom when they move into new rental accommodation today.

The Compact WashPod is the smallest in the range and was assembled off-site, before being installed in under a day in a spare bedroom at the property.

Eleanor Hales, Occupational Therapist at Sherwood Therapy Services, has overseen the project. “We’re all thrilled because it was only three weeks ago that we found the property and got the go-ahead. The Compact WashPod is a perfect solution as it means that we haven’t have to wait for costly adaptations. Neither will we have to make good at the end of the rental period – so a double saving”.

The Compact WashPod is a unique solution to bathing and has been specially designed for limited spaces, fitting internally into a reception room or bedroom. It’s fabulously quick to install with a potential lead time of only 10 days and can be fitted in less than a day. It will be the answer for many people needing at-home, disabled bathing where space is at a premium and where extra room for carers, hoists and trollies may not be needed.
