Manufacturer's product description

Solaticare an exciting new solution for those who are unable to access toileting facilities independently, once in bed.

It promotes dignity by allowing the user an independent solution to the need to eliminate, although a carer may also assist in the process.

To use the hospital bed model, the user needs to be lying supine, without pants, sheets may remain in situ. Using the remote control, the process is initiated with the press of one button. The mattress infill moves down and away, the Solaticare suction head then rises through the mattress to its working position, in very close contact with the body. As elimination starts sensors within the suction head will automatically remove the waste into a hermetically sealed unit located at the bedside. Once this has finished, rinsing with warm water follows, and the process finishes with warm air to dry the skin. Then the suction head returns to its original location, and the mattress infill returns to give a comfortable feel to the bed.

An extraction unit located by the bed stores clean water and waste, emptying/refilling is needed, usually just once a day, it includes an in-built catalytic deodorizer to neutralize any unpleasant odours. The process can also be controlled from the panel on the unit. There is the option to customise water and air temperatures and the pause after defecation, before extraction starts. There is also a voice prompt option, which both describes the functions and alerts the carer for example, when the water tanks need attention.

Optional shower hoses can improve the experience of washing while in bed.
