The Washseat fits over the top of an existing toilet to provide a raised seat and built in washing facility to enable the user to manage their personal hygiene with dignity.

The Washseat safely delivers a gentle but effective warm water stream to wash to the user whilst still sitting on a raised toilet.

Health Innovation East has entered into a revenue share with the Washseat’s creators, Better Hygiene, and provided support for both prototype development and setting up a trial with care homes across the region.
