Remodeling your bathroom when a loved one becomes dependent on a wheelchair for mobility isn’t always an option. This is why we offer Fawssit portable showers for our customers. After a long day, a shower is a perfect way to relax and unwind. However, when you suffer from a disability or injury, showering can become difficult and dangerous. The shower is designed to help people using a wheelchair get in and out of the shower with ease.
How the Fawssit Portable Shower Works
The showers come assembled, so no tools or construction is required. The only two things you need are access to an electrical outlet and a sink. The unit is set up within 15 feet of a sink (if a longer distance is needed, you can contact the manufacturer, and they can make hoses to fit your home up to 30 feet). The sides of the shower fold open and secure with velcro straps. The unit comes with a vinyl drain pan that sits on the bottom. The front opens, so the wheelchair user enters and exits the unit. Attach the shower head to the sink faucet, plug the pump into a 3-prong outlet, and voila, you have a portable shower!
Once done showering, there is no need to wait for the pan to drain. The pan is designed to keep water from leaking when the wheelchair user exits. When the individual is done showering, turn off the pump, dry the water off from the curtain and pan, then fold the unit to be stored away until its next usage.
Variety of Models
There are a variety of Fawsitt Portable Showers. The Standard showers fit 220 lbs. And the Bariatric model can accommodate up to 400 lbs. There are also models for a reclining wheelchair or extra space for a caregiver aiding with bathing. When you are deciding which model will best fit your needs, our accessibility experts at Next Day Access store can help you.
At Next Day Access, our goal is to help people with disabilities live independently while being safe and comfortable. Contact us for a free in-home safety evaluation.
