Safe, supportive bathing for babies, children and Young Adults

Bath time for children is important in several areas; hygiene, bonding and an opportunity to play but most of all, the child should feel safe and relaxed.
Children with no ability to sit unsupported will struggle to be safe when bathing and finding a comfortable bathing aid for children with complex disabilities is not easy.

The Custom Bath Seat from SOS, offers an opportunity for children with complex needs to be provided with a fully supportive seat that will establish a safe, supportive environment at bath time.

Symmetrical and custom moulded options available

The Bath seat is available in two different options.  For children that have body symmetry but need extra support, we offer a range of standard moulded sizes to ensure a good fit.

For children with more complex needs, SOS can custom mould their bath seat using the same system as our custom moulded seating.

 

Description

Description

The Custom Bath Seat from SOS, offers an opportunity for children with complex needs to be provided with a fully supportive seat that will establish a safe, supportive environment at bath time.

Depending on the child’s needs there are two moulded bath seat options. The first is for those that have body symmetry but need that extra support when in a seated position. The child’s measurements are taken and a choice of standard moulded sizes is available to ensure a good fit, so the child feels both safe and comfortable.

For those children who have more complex needs, we can custom mould their bath seat. Using the well proven, vacuum consolidation technique, SOS’s expert seating assessors will establish the optimum position for each child. A cast is then taken and SOS manufactures the seat to the precise measurements of each child.

Construction

Each seat is moulded from rigid thermoplastics with a durable closed cell foam liners, which are waterproof and provides a thermal layer between the seat and the child, maintaining a warm comfortable sensation during use.

Mounted onto a plinth, the seat is located into the bath with suctions cups to secure it in position during use.
Lightweight and easily maintained, the Custom Bath Seat from SOS is available in a range of colours and finishes allowing each to be individually styled.

Seats can be fitted with a range of s safety straps, if required and this is discussed at the assessment stage.

Assessments will usually involve the children’s parents/carers and whenever possible, their therapist who knows the child well, to ensure the best position is achieved.

Advice and Assessment

Each client is individually assessed to identify the specification of the Custom Bath Seat so that all the component parts of the seat meet the requirements of the client sitting posture.

Assessments are best done in the home environment or where the equipment is to be used to make sure that all aspects of how the equipment is to integrate are assessed.
