The Dignity Bidet Commode, a D4D supported product – is set to provide dignity and assistance to users, after being recently released.
A self-controlled device – the Dignity Bidet Commode can wash and dry its user without the need for assistance – and offers a dignified alternative to the traditional product.
D4D helped the product’s inventor, Mr Andy Speechley, to develop his prototype with a team of design engineers at Royal Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield. From there, the team at D4D assisted with ensuring safety and hygiene standards were met to the appropriate standard.
The Dignity Commode is being manufactured by commercial partner Gordon Ellis & Co and has received Regional Innovation Funding to aid its uptake by the NHS.
