About Bathing

Bathing is more than just hygiene. Bathing and showering is sometimes wrongly perceived as two methods you have to choose between.

The real truth is that your residents need to both bath and shower.

Bathing is used less frequently for personal hygiene. On the other hand, it offers many therapeutic advantages that your residents will not get from showering.

The bathing process promotes a sense of resident well-being. A warm bath soothes muscles and relaxes the mind.




For those with impaired mobility, bathing becomes even more important. A bath makes the body feel lighter, and the water’s buoyancy allows the resident greater freedom of movement.
 
Hydromassage
Hydromassage helps care facilities to improve residents’ quality of life.

A bathing system’s built-in Hydromassage unit creates millions of small bubbles and agitation in the water that cleanses and stimulates the skin, amplifying the effects of bathing in a number of ways.

The Hydromassage option promotes peripheral blood circulation, pain relief, wound healing and relaxation:

Extra stimulation for residents’ peripheral blood circulation is helpful in promoting skin growth and preventing decubitus ulcers.

  • The penetrating heat effect creates a feeling of warmth which brings relief from rheumatoid arthritis by reducing pain and inflammation in the joints.
  • Deeper relaxation is induced which helps to calm down residents and reduce requirements for sedatives and other medication.

An automatic disinfection system for components inside the Hydromassage unit is available to provide fast and effective cleaning, which minimizes the risk of cross-infections.
