Traditional accessible toilets do not often meet the needs of the thousands of people with profound and multiple learning disabilities as well as other severe impairments such as spinal injuries, muscular dystrophy and cerebral palsy.

A Changing Places toilet has more space and provides the equipment people need to be able to use the toilet in safety and comfort. It is important that these features are all present in order to make sure the toilet is suitable for those who need it most.

Each toilet must provide an adult sized, height adjustable changing bench, a hoist and a peninsular (centrally placed) toilet.

The equipment below can be provided by OpeMed and Aveso for your Changing Places. We are trained to supply the full specification of Changing Places equipment but cater for part Changing Places equipment too. For any questions regarding the required equipment please contact us for a fast response.
