Bed with Toilet

When I think of a bed with a built-in toilet, the first thing I think of is Liz Lemon or maybe Homer Simpson. But it’s not that, that’s not what we’re talking about! This is a serious matter. This is the Dignity Bed designed by Enda Thomas. This bed is made for physically impaired folks who have trouble making their way to the toilet. There’s a built-in dry toilet facility where waste is contained in an electronically sealed waste bag. Can you believe it?!

All the functions of this magnificent machine are controlled by a hand set. Dignity Bed is antibacterial protected and easy to wipe clean.

This is so weird to write about.

    Fantastic idea – dignity is going out of so many area's of the community at the moment. Well done – great area to re awaken.

    That is an awesome idea!! I remember struggling to take my grandmother to the bathroom when she was sick and dying with cancer. Just trying to hold her up and help her get her clothes off to go was quite the challenge. With this bed you could help her get her clothes off then slide her over to the toilet. This definitely would have been much more convenient!!

    Many parents believe there isn’t much that can be done when it comes to nighttime potty training, but there are things that can be done to keep up the effort near bedtime.

    Hi there,
    Great idea!
    How about a sliding compartment under the pelvic area built inside (underneath) the bed?
    It’s not possible for one caregiver to transfer a paralyzed person from the bed to the attached commode.

    I think it could be possible for a bed to be designed to be altered to a SIT position with a Slide Out of the bed area to accommodate the commode.
    With the bed in the SIT position.
    A slide-out from the bed to slide-in the commode (replica and size of a toilet seat).
    Sitting on the “toilet seat” slide-in, prompts people to urinate/defecate even if they don’t think they have to go!
    The reflexes to go “on a toilet seat” are well-ingrained in the neuromuscular system.

    Also, adding water-based (warm cleaning spray, even enema spray) for front and/or back followed by warm air dry would be a caregiver’s GODSEND.
    When finished on the toilet, then bed rises to accommodate slide-out of water-equipped commode and slide-in of bed.

    A disabled/paralyzed/demented/bedridden person’s caregiver can push buttons alone.
    But the bed-to-toilet transfer and cleaning is not possible for one person caregiver.

    The Hoyer lift is difficult for the average caregiver to use, cumbersome and not feasible if the person is too disabled to sit on a toilet.

    Thanks for your time and consideration.

    Erin
