AKW’s New Bidet Takes Intimate Care to the Next Level O


ne of the things most people take for granted and think little about is


using the toilet. However, for some people, this seemingly simple procedure can become very challenging. That is why AKW, one of the UK’s leading providers of accessibility solutions, has launched its new AKW Bidet. Ideal for both social care and private


installations, the AKW Bidet has been developed to offer a cost-effective, quick to install and easy to use and maintain bidet for those wanting a non-permanent solution. The AKW Bidet is water mains fed and offers users a range of temperature, water spray and dryer options. The bidet’s wide range of functions are also fully controlled via a handheld remote control. When previewed at The OT Show,


occupational therapists were impressed with a range of things on the AKW Bidet, compared to existing models on the market. These included the bidet’s weight limit of 23.5 stone /150kg and the fact that side transfer lugs have been included, to minimise lateral movement when moving from a wheelchair. Other plus points were the bidet’s very quiet dryer mechanism and the fact that the seat, lid and bidet are detachable to allow for effective cleaning.


The AKW Bidet includes a high power 1750W


instantaneous water heater that has six levels of temperature control and delivers warm water on demand, allowing for continual washing. There are five rear wash positions in addition to five feminine wash positions, as well as five intensity


settings for the spray and four modes of spray. The 350W dryer also has a 3 minute drying cycle, six temperature settings and five adjustable speeds. In addition the AKW Bidet incorporates a self-cleaning function, is quiet to operate and has an inbuilt LED night light for ease of use, whenever needed. The bidet has two seat options, a sculpted


variant for use with matching AKW sanitaryware and an ergonomic unit for use with AKW Livenza and most common toilet pan designs. The unit also has a seat sensor to prevent accidental usage. Stuart Reynolds, Head of Product and


Marketing at AKW comments: “The AKW Bidet is quick and easy to install and has been developed to bring increased independence to those looking for help with their toileting. The bidet’s wide range of functionality, ease of installation and competitive price mean that it is sure to be popular with end users, installers and occupational therapists alike.” For more information, please contact AKW.
