Closomat and Geberittoilet bidets can both be used as ordinary toilets, but when you remain seated after using the toilet you can activate a cleaning and drying process, with a simple press button, a foot pedal or even a light beam activation. The water temperature and pressure can be set up to suit you and you can stay seated for as long as it takes to feel dry. You can try these amazing appliances in privacy at our demonstration centre.
The Soleticare in bed toilet bidet system from Novamed Europe has to be seen to be believed as it facilitates independent use of an automated collection device for when you need to empty your bladder and bowel, followed by careful washing and drying, all completed while you are lying in bed. We have seen it in action and can request a demo at the ILC if you want to see it too. Yes, it is expensive to buy but they have a very reasonable rental option which some people in Devon have already taken up.
