Designed and made in Canada, this mobile hygienic device is a true paradigm shift in hygienic care for both patients, families and healthcare workers.
Healthcare facilities such as hospices, nursing homes, hospitals and any other senior residences servicing non-autonomous, bedridden, mobility reduced and palliative patients can benefit from this solution.
They can now reduce considerably the time typically allocated to ''basic hygienic care'' which allows them to focus on what matters most : ensuring all residents receive their personalized care, enhancing the patient centered experience, and improving infection prevention. They can also ensure to minimize the risks of falls and all risks of injuries related to the patient transportation inside the facility.
Wishower is a self-contained, digitally controlled, hygienic mobile device that literally meets the person in the intimacy of the bedroom, thus limiting infection spread and unnecessary injuries to both patients and caregivers.
There is no need to carry, lift, hoist or move the person to a bathing area. This is not only the safer option for showering patients that cannot walk themselves to the bathroom. This is the most efficient, reliable and comfortable method to bathe them from head to toes.
With Wishower, it is much easier to reach bathing standards, gain benefits and improve confined patients' lives.
Saves up to 50% of caregivers time* for each complete hygienic care while providing a complete patient centered experience.
The shower in bed, including body wash and shampoo, can often be done in less than 8 minutes*.
The whole shower process, from the preparation to the decontamination process, can be carried out in less than 26 minutes**. This represents substantial water and energy savings if we compare it to the general consumption of shower gurneys, stretcher-showers and therapeutic baths.
*Average washing time based on internal tests.
**Entire hygienic care process from start to finish based on internal tests.
Limits the spread of infections by keeping residents in their bedroom and eliminating the transportation to the bathing area. Also, the whole decontamination process can be done directly in the resident’s bathroom.
The reduction of manipulation and inner transportation automatically decreases unnecessary risks of injuries to patients and nursing staff.
This mobile device is very user-friendly. Its features allow caregivers to perform a complete shower in bed comfortably, and to wheel it easily (gently push) from one room to another. The digital touchscreen interface is constantly accessible to healthcare workers, thus making their work easier and permitting them to stay updated on key indicators throughout the care.
The device’s settings are designed and adapted to the residents needs and preferences in terms of general comfort, water flow and temperature.
Since we do not lift, hoist or transport residents anymore, we can avoid many risks related to traditionnal hygienic methods. There is a significant reduction of fear, anxiety and panic reactions from residents towards bathing care. They can now enjoy a shower in bed in their own safe and comfortable environment.
