Bath Safety

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:


Dignity Lifts

Bidet Toilet Lift WL1

Bidet Toilet Lift WL1

Toilet lift incorporates a fully featured bidet

Seated on the warmed toilet seat, users can push a button and be lowered effortlessly to a low toilet height. After they complete toileting, the bidet will cleanse them with three levels of pressure and adjustable water temperature. They can even aim the 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 Toilet Lift - WL1 will retail for $2,999 and will be available this Spring.
