Bidet toilet meets needs of students with disabilities

Total Hygiene
This bidet toilet from Total Hygiene is increasingly being used by universities to cater for the needs of students with disabilities.

Total Hygiene is enjoying a significant increase in the sales of its Clos-o-Mat Palma bidet toilet to universities and colleges, reflecting the 22% growth in student numbers in the past decade and future predicted rises. Recent projects include halls of resident at the University of Reading, Cardiff University, Bournemouth University and campus buildings at Preston College and Hull College of Higher Education.

The increase in sales is driven by the universities UK code of practice for the management of student housing, the Disabilities Discrimination Act and the latest requirements of the Special Educational Needs & Disability Act (SENDA).

These bidet toilets look like a conventional toilet pan but have integrated douche (wash) and drying facilities and are claimed to be the only bidet toilets on the market developed specifically for the disabled. They are WRAS approved, enabling them to be connected to the UK water supply.

Pushing the flush pad (using hand, elbow or body pressure) or the remote-control hand switch) flushes the toilet and can trigger the washing and drying process. These functions can be stopped at any time simply by standing up. The Clos-o-Mat Palma eliminates the need to use toilet paper.

Total Hygiene provides a comprehensive sales, installation and after-sales package — including a range of options to tailor each unit to individual requirements.
