Clean Mate / Cleaning Caddy Hybrid

Clean Mate
Clean Mate

For elders, losing the ability to clean can leave people feeling dependent. Clean Mate empowers people through a hybrid of three main functions: a walker, a folding seat and a cleaning product storage. The design helps people get to their desired location; provides a seat for rest; and ultimately provides an organized storage for cleaning products that often lay in disarray. Additional features such as safety spring locks prevent slipping hazards when sat upon and tubs enable easy access to tools. The non-geriatric, by-your-side caddy makes Clean Mate universally beneficial and the ideal personal cleaning companion.
