Simply the best – a toilet!
he best in product and service back-up" is the opinion of a Doctor in hyperbaric medicine – about his toilet.
The toilet in question is a Palma Vita, manufactured by Closomat, in the UK; whilst it looks like a conventional WC – and can be used as such – the Closomat Palma Vita has in-built douching and drying, operated simply by pressing and holding the flush pad or 'soft touch' switch. Dr Kenneth Townend PhD, from Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, had it installed to help him undertake personal hygiene in comfort when he developed diverticulitis after suffering two strokes.
"The diverticulitis means my bowels move only every 5–10 days, which makes passing motions difficult and sore. I bleed and often get infections.
With the Closomat, I just press the button and off we go!
I get far less sore bums, which I used to get all the time even though I used the softest toilet paper or even wipes. And I am confident that I am clean, which didn't happen before," he explains. "I have the toilet regularly serviced, and on the rare occasions I have needed it inbetween, the company's backup service has been the best."
Closomat is the first choice for disabled people and their carers, to deliver quality, easy to use toileting solutions that bring greater independence, dignity and hygiene.Mark Sadler Sales Director
