Recouse / Emergency call bell


“It seems to be the shortest distance, but becomes to be the furthest one when people in need.”
“It seems to be the easiest action, but the hardest one to be achieved at the critical moment.”

Recouse is an emergency call bell with extended U-shaped bars and exsiccative function, creating a safer and more user-friendly environment in the bathroom.

Traditional emergency call bells are only triggered in certain ways such as pressing the button or pulling the line.

This U-shaped emergency call bell has extended bars providing more touch areas for users when in need.
