Discipline: Professional Concept

Bath chairs are used when senior patients wash themselves or their caregivers bathe them. Presently, few bath chairs reflect senior patients’ needs. ‘Ium’ was designed as an ergonomic bath chair based on an analysis of body size and use patterns among seniors. It has a safety structure that prevents accidents and enhances usability. Senior patients can use the bidet to easily wash their private parts without feeling ashamed. It also offers a cushion for preventing pressure ulcers.
