Why choose high sanitary wares for elderly people?

Thermomat has designed and created several lines of high sanitary ware, for elderly people that, looking for a more comfortable product, do not want to give up to a nice product also from the aesthetical point of view.

Ensuring autonomy at all ages, to all the people, is an important issue for Thermomat and one of the solutions is represented by high sanitary ware for elderly people. High sanitary wares are one of aspect of the bathroom that help people to create a space suitable for everyone and functional, even for older people who need to find an intelligent solution inside the bathroom. Among these, there are for sure grab bars for elderly people wall mounted, to help the movements and the facilitate the autonomy inside the bathroom. In the project of a bathroom for elderly people, the choice to install high bathroom fixtures is for sure a great help.
Let’s see together why.

Sanitary wares for elderly people: the choice of a higher model for a better seat.High sanitary wares for elderly people have a much higher height than traditional models: we find models 46 cm high like Senior 46 series by Thermomat or also 47 cm like the Style 47 series.

In both cases, sanitary wares are not only higher but also more comfortable thanks to the ergonomic seat.

But why a high sanitary ware can be an aid in terms of movements? 

Certainly, one the objectives of high sanitary wares is to facilitate the movement of elderly people sitting on the wc or bidet: the height of the toilet, in fact, allows you to sit down without unnecessary efforts. In this way the person will not have to make too much efforts to sit down and also to stand up. The effort could cause in fact small trauma to the lumbar area and also domestic accidents if a person is not completely self-sufficient.  
The beauty of choosing a line of sanitary ware for the elderly is also to think about universal design, that is suitable for everyone, and able to make a bathroom space accessible to everyone. 
In fact, the possibility to design and create bathrooms suitable for every person contributes to create accessible spaces that offer comfort and well-being during the time. 
In addition to this: the high sanitary wares can also be installed in the bathrooms of people with a height higher than usual, creating a bathroom space suitable for everyone, with comfort and design.
