It is a combined toilet and bidet system for use in the bed. It has been designed for the benefit of both users and carers, to enable urination and defecation without a bedpan or continence pads. It allows the user an independent solution to their need to eliminate. Solaticare is for continent adults, who are bed-bound with limited mobility and are aware of their need to void.
There are two options – an automatic version located in the workings of the electric profiling bed, and a mattress system, which uses a specially adapted mattress placed on a standard bed, with the help of a carer. Both versions of the Solaticare System allow those in bed to urinate, defecate, and then be rinsed and dried.
The Profiling Bed:
The profiling bed system allows full independence of use, and the full benefits of a profiling bed although a carer is required to replenish the buckets daily. A cutaway section of the mattress moves down and away, and is replaced by the suction head which extracts waste products, rinses with pre-selected warm water and then the process is completed with a warm air dry. The suction head then returns to its original location, under the bed and the mattress cut-away is restored to its original location. Both clean and used dirty water are stored in a sealed bedside unit – no pluming required.
The Mattress System:
The mattress system is a simplified, budget option, which can be used on any standard single bed, and in most situations will need active involvement of a carer to position and then remove the suction head. It is supplied with an adapted mattress, which allows easy positioning of the suction head level with the mattress. It uses an identical bedside unit as a profiling bed and functioning of the elimination of the waste and cleaning of the user is the same.
