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:

bidet nozzle to the right spot for men and
for women. After drying with the WL1’s
blow-dryer, users push a button to rise back
to their feet. Toilet lifts prevent falls, but
if something did go wrong and they need
assistance, the WL1 has an alarm button
that is loud enough to alert anyone nearby
that there is trouble. The Dignity Lifts Bidet
