Thinking Outside the Box; Modular Changing Places Solutions
Posted on March 5, 2018
Many reservations for installing Changing Places facilities surround limitations in space, particularly in historical and completed buildings. Maintaining focus on purely internal adaptations can really limit what is possible and even halt such a project all together.
Thinking Outside the Box
But when we think a little outside the box, the solution becomes obvious – taking Changing Places literally outside! Installing Changing Places in pre-fabricated modular units can be, and has been, a fantastic means including Changing Places toilets in places where there isn’t a suitable space to install one inside of a building. It also provides the benefits of minimising any disruption to the existing buildings, as the installation of equipment is completed off-site; our modular facilities are delivered and lifted into position fully finished.

What is your colour?
Posted on October 11, 2017
What is your colour? For many years’ artists, scientists and researchers have been interested in the psychology of colour. They found that colour can have a profound effect on the human mind and emotions; evoking memory, affecting mood and influencing behaviour.
- Cool colours create a sense of calm
- Yellow is a subtly optimistic, happy colour.
- White has long been a symbol of purity and cleanliness.
- Light reflecting colours create an illusion of space.
- Reds, oranges and browns make a space feel warm and welcoming.

OpeMed Disabled Bathing on DIY SOS BBC1
Posted on September 5, 2014
Disabled Bathing on DIY SOS: The Big Build
On September 4th the BBC aired DIY SOS: The Big Build on Channel 1 which saw a family dealing with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (a severe form of the condition) make serious adaptations to their home. The family needed the support of assistive equipment to deal with their son Christopher’s condition such as a through floor lift, ceiling hoist and height adjustable bath to enable more mobility, easy care and accessible hygiene.
Proudly, one of our height adjustable Rio baths (supplied by Astor Bannerman) was installed in the family’s home in Hereford which has enabled the family to safely bathe Christopher. The bath’s “up and down” mechanism operates via hand control and is designed to provide a safe working height for the carer as well as a comfortable bathing position for the user, The Rio is ideal for use with ceiling hoists or floor hoists as it has a large open area underneath the bath.
With the option of a neat-fold stretcher for reduced transfers and hydrotherapy options for muscular relaxation; the Rio bath as featured on BBC1 has proven to enhance a bathroom both aesthetically and practically.
