When electrician Kyle McAdam Whyte arranged to go out with friends four years ago, he little realised the consequences: it would involve him losing even his ability to go to the loo without help. The car in which he was passenger was involved in an accident, which left Kyle unconscious and with life-changing injuries. High level spinal damage has left him unable to do most things for himself – even daily activities such as going to the toilet. So, he has used some of his compensation to adapt his family home, and install the latest in smart toilet technology – a Closomat Asana. The contemporary, sleek wall-hung WC delivers what is claimed to be the ultimate in intimate care, by push button or remote control. Integrated douching and drying deliver hygienic and thorough cleaning. The user is left feeling fresh and dry without any need to wipe – or be wiped. Asana also offers unrivalled personalisation: the concealed cistern can be built into the wall, or hidden behind a choice of sleek back panels in a choice of finishes; operation can be via the integrated push buttons on the edge of the pan, remote control, or, if being used as a conventional WC, via a choice of smart flush devices. Asana is the latest evolution of smart toilets from one of the UK’s brand leaders, Closomat. Kyle commented: “It looks much better than anything else like it on the market. Also, in my opinion, it washes and dries more effectively too. I feel much cleaner.” 0161 969 1199 Helping self builders’ sustainable spec
