High-Tech Helpers: EnuSens Toilet Training Alarm System

High-Tech Helpers: EnuSens Toilet Training Alarm System

Helping your child understand toilet training

Having an older child who suffers from bladder weakness and needs more support in their toilet training can be a very testing and difficult thing to live with. However, this new product, exhibited at Naidex’s New Product Showcase has been designed with education and sensitivity in mind. EnuSens is an enurises monitor which has education and support as its main goals, helping to guide children into waking up when nature calls without having to be attached to a noisy buzzer or rely on uncomfortable training underwear, that never ever feels good. This new toilet training alarm system is designed to work on your child’s confidence, understanding their own body and their self-esteem.

Working with your child to understand their body

High Tech sensors make this system discrete and reliable for detecting enuresis

EnuSensTM can be used to help educate children to wake up and use the bathroom. Some children can respond faster than others to this type of training, depending on age and other various factors. What’s more this product also helps children understand how their body works, if they have the capacity to do and it also can be used in a number of healthcare settings. Receiving positive feedback from the Convention has seen the product easily available online and the soft cotton sensor means all chances of being uncomfortable can be eliminated. What’s more, you could use these product in conjunction with Brolly Sheets or the Uriwell range to create an even less clinical atmosphere.

Used by Adults

This product can also be used by adults, either in bed or perhaps whilst out and about in a wheelchair. The hardwearing sensor allows for comfort as well as easy positioning in the correct position in the chair and if you have a support team or carers, it allows them to respond immediately to any accidents or leakage. Even better, although there is an alarm option this can be silenced so there is no need to feel undignified or embarrassed by any little accidents and they can be handled safely without any need for upset.

High-Tech Helpers: Adjustable Shower Chair

High-Tech Helpers: Adjustable Shower Chair

At Living with Disability we have previously discussed the importance of dignity and independence for personal care and hygiene processes and have looked at items which supported this process. Today, we’re looking more closely at the range of adjustable shower chairs on the market and how they can be a huge help if you don’t have an adapted bathroom but need support using your shower or bath.

Shower Chairs make personal care dignified

Adjustable shower chairs are a great option as you can position them at the right level for you to ensure you can shower easily, comfortable and without risk of falling or slipping. The range of height adjustable shower chairs make showering safer and less stressful if you live with a condition which affects your mobility. Modern adjustable shower chairs allow for more comfort and the newer, more modern designs are more compact and lightweight than previous models. Some models even feature wheels making transfer to and from the bedroom or dressing room much simpler too. The lightweight and compact models make supporting someone living with disabilities slightly easier too as providing personal care becomes much easier whilst using a specifically designed piece of equipment.

Showering and bathing are very private elements of your personal care routine and any support you need needs to be given with dignity. Additional apparatus such as adjustable shower chairs can really make the process less uncomfortable. Customers who have already purchased their chair sing their praises, recommending them for being both lightweight and sturdy and providing much needed support in homes without adapted bathrooms.
This video from a company specialising in Multiple Sclerosis relief shows clearly how shower chairs can be correctly used:

There are a huge range of shower chairs on the market but all the reputable branded models are of equal quality. If you click in the box below you’ll be able to purchase one of the most competitively priced models on the market:

After this post we received this post from Guy at DisabledGear.com suggesting his Travel Shower chair

Adjustable Shower Chair for travel? What about http://t.co/uLyfuTgj? @ @

Travel shower chair a best seller at DisabledGear.com

The shower chair from DisabledGear is a superior shower chair and is easily folded away when not required. A real boon for short term storage and carrying it with you, it uses a patented folding design. The light blue foam padded back support is comfy and firm for resting against and the non-slip foam seat has a convenient U-shaped hole for er.. convenience 😉

The armrests are also padded with foam for comfortable support when seated or rising and they also reposition out of the way to help you get onto the seat. The foam arms can be locked down by a  push-release catch for peace of mind. The clever shape and ergonomics of the shower chair ensures that it is firmly anchored to the floor whilst transferring your weight to another chair or surface – something that other makes and models cannot always achieve.

The legs are height adjustable and have ferrules to stop the shower chair from slipping or moving while it is being used. An aluminium frame means that it is one of the lightest models available is fully resistant to rust or corrosion.

Seat size 406 x 406mm (16 x 16′). Height adjustable to max.483mm / 19″. Weight 5kg. Price £133 Ex VAT

Ingenious Ideas: The Uriwell Portable Toilet Range

Ingenious Ideas: The Uriwell Range

Personal care is one of those extremely private concerns which we at Living with Disability understand should be treated with dignity and respect. The Uriwell product range is a fantastic set of products which make dealing with urinary or bladder weakness in both adults and children, providing a means of discreetly and comfortably relieving yourself without having to worry about searching for the less than easy to access toilet facilities or when in the car.

Uriwell Adult

portable toilet wheelchair toilet aid

The Original Uriwell

The Adult Uriwell product is designed to be used by unisex customers and allows for easy and discreet urination without worry or upset. It becomes your own portable toilet. It can help you avoid those awkward situations where you are no longer able to hold on and also allows for more dignity and control in situations where there simply is no facility available. Small and easy to store, you can secrete your Uriwell away with no issues and easily access it when necessary. Fitted with a leak proof lid and easy to clean, this product solves a problem for which there may not have been an answer before.

This short video shows the Uriwells specifications and features:

The video doesn’t focus specifically on some of the more common uses of the Uriwell but does show the full range including the children’s HappyPee

HappyPee for Kids

The Bright and Amusing HappyPee

The HappyPee product has been designed with young children in mind and can even be used as a potty training aid for older children, or those who suffer anxiety in public places and therefore would struggle to handle public toilets and such like. As the photo shows the HappyPee has been designed with humour in mind and could easily distract an anxious child from their worries whilst they go. Portable and easy to use, the HappyPee is a great way of ensuring your child feels happy when out and about and needs toilet access. Like the adult Uriwell, the HappyPee is a unisex product.

Reviews for both products have been fantastic, solving many ‘caught short’ problems but also removing the anxiety from trips out and making travelling a much less stressful experience. With your Uriwell to hand you never have to worry about being caught short, suffering from an impromptu accident or anything else.

A recent reviewer said

 

The product exactly as described, my grandson is most willing to use it – its made going for a wee-wee exciting.

 

Uriwell have also introduced a multipack option: the Happy Family – Multipack Range.  This is a 3 pack including a blue Uriwell, a pink Uriwell (an identical design but in pink), and a Happy Pee, the child friendly shape that can, of course, still be used by adults. Repackage these as gifts or use them yourself as a way of getting 3 uriwells at a very low price. One for the car, one for the bedroom and one for carrying with you.
