New from AKW, revolution in care showers - LUDA ® Intelligent Shower
Manufactured by AKW, market-leading provider of elderly and disabled bathing products, this revolutionary electric care shower offers a range of features specifically designed for user safety and comfort. Unlike other adapted showers, LUDA ® has been completely designed for the special needs market. Suitable for varying levels of disabilities and older people with restricted mobility and dexterity.
LUDA ® is a fully water proof shower unit with IP45 rating allowing worry-free showering, even if water splashes onto it. It also carries a comprehensive BEAB Care Approval rating.
Partially-sighted users will find the LUDA ® ideal. An advanced thermostatic control - featuring audio bleeps, LED illumination and tactile control buttons gives users complete control of the power, temperature and water flow settings. It has RNIB accreditation, having been developed following close work with the charity. AKW also worked closely with Innovations in Dementia CIC during LUDA’s ® development to make it suitable for people with dementia.
Designed to accommodate both standing and seated users, the LUDA ® features an extended hose length, easy to use push buttons to adjust the height of the shower head, soap dish and shelf, plus a hook to store face cloths and showering products safely. The 1m riser-rail doubles as a grab-rail for additional security and a lever on the base of the riser-rail allows those with limited dexterity to easily adjust the direction of the shower head.
Easy to clean, the LUDA ® has three variable settings to save water plus a two-year warranty for total peace of mind.
