Enabling Support from Horne

Horne’s CARE shower is widely used across the NHS, extra-care, dementia care and Changing Places facilities and, with its enhanced inclusive design, provides extra support to enable better independence for its users.

The robust riser rail is fully redesigned; a durable core of anodised aluminium, treated with hard-wearing polyester paint, is fixed to solid and smooth injection-moulded elbows ± wall fixings.

The riser grip/release mechanism epitomises inclusive design; combining fishing-reel technology for a finely controlled friction grip and a custom-designed spring for its low-force release.  Wheelchair and shorter users can also pull on the mechanism release extender to easily lower a high-set shower head.

Available in standard white or deep orange, the rail offers valuable support and optimum visibility – contrast and colour – appropriate for elderly or dementia care establishments where progressive visual impairments are commonplace.

Grab rails, also in white or deep orange, provide further support and these can be paired with shower, bath, hand-wash basins or WC for additional accessibility.  Horne grab rails can accommodate a maximum load of 150Kgf.
