As Occupational Therapists, you have a lot on your plate. Productivity targets, a high and never-ending caseload, difficult and demanding cases that are emotionally draining, being on the front line and piles of paperwork. Added to all this, is the knowledge that, in most cases, time is of the essence. The quicker the support is put in place, the better the outcome for the patient. So it can be particularly frustrating if, having developed a care plan, it can’t be implemented because there are no contractors available to do the work and it may be months, or even a year, before they can start.

Finding solutions that ease this burden and shorten the response time must be attractive – and the WashPod range of modular, disabled wetrooms is one of them.  These robust but aesthetic units are uniquely designed by accessible-living architects collaborating with specialists in modular buildings to give versatile bathing options – in hours rather than months or years. Adaptations to the properties are not required so disruption during installation is kept to a minimum.

As the specialist, you offer new and easy ways for your patient to do daily tasks (washing, dressing, cooking and eating) to people going through physical, mental, and emotional trauma so that they can overcome the problems and lead a normal, satisfying, and happy life.

As your main aim is to determine what the patient needs to achieve this, washing is essentially high on your list in order to help them maintain a healthy body and wellbeing. So whether it’s ensuring that an amputee’s new stump is kept clean to aid healing or warming the muscles of a body that’s recovering from a stroke, accessible washing is a priority

All the OTs that we’ve worked with say they love the WashPod and it’s not hard to see why as the list of benefits is long. The high specification, coupled with its ease of use, make it the rapid and versatile answer to turning a home that’s inaccessible, into one that’s accessible with an interim answer to dignified disabled bathing.

There are 7 models of WashPod in various sizes, both internal and external, which can be configured into a bespoke solution that adapts to suit your client’s specific needs and spaces. Its design is also contemporary and attractive, making it look and feel permanent and comfortable.

We’ve even developed a DFG Turnaround Service for those hoping to fund it through the Disabled Facilities Grant, allowing the Local Authority or Housing Association to buy the WashPod so that it can be reused time and time again, while only paying a capped logistics fee to cover all additional services and maintenance.
