Approximately 80 percent of
home accidents occur
in the bathroom,
but most of those accidents can
be prevented with the right
safety products. That statistic
demonstrates that there is plenty
of opportunity for a provider to
grow its business by stocking
bathroom safety products.
The key is to offer a wide array
of solutions that can fit clients’
unique needs. Talk to the patient
or caregiver to get a solid sense of
the challenges and situation.
Because bathing is universal
and the Baby Boomer demographic
increasingly needs these
solutions, the retail appeal of
bath safety is clear. But that also
means big box stores are now
part of the competition and they
aren’t shy about discounting.
To compete, HME retailers
need to lean hard on their reputation
for being knowledgeable,
convenient, personalized service
and quality products. To help you
maintain your expertise, here
are some new and bedrock bath
safety product offerings:

Movable Toilet Eases the Bathroom Process for Patients and Their Caregivers
The MOVABOWL is a movable and flushable toilet, which not only assists people with disabilities in using the toilet, but also makes the process easier for nurses and caregivers. This design allows the toilet bowl to travel out of the bathroom to where the disabled person is located. Then the mobile toilet bowl is used in a location outside of the bathroom. Finally, the mobile toilet bowl returns to the docking station in the bathroom and can be flushed. The process eliminates the handling of waste, and in most cases, nurses no longer have to sterilize commode chairs or bed pans. In addition to the convenience of bringing the toilet next to the disabled person, the use of this innovation is a more pleasant experience for the user because it feels just like a standard toilet and has water in the bowl.
