Making hygiene routines safer and easier for caregivers

Since the creation of Arjo over sixty years ago, improving the hygiene care experience for patients, residents and caregivers has been at the very heart of what we do.

Without access to appropriate equipment, hygiene care can be hazardous as static overload and physical strain² puts caregivers at risk of injury. Our solutions offer options to reduce this risk and at the same time save valuable time³.

Reducing caregiver risk during assisted bathing

Bathing has been recognised as a pleasurable relaxing experience for centuries. Bathing is a basis for hygiene, in addition it can promote a sense of well-being. A warm bath can relax both muscles and mind.⁵

Bathing is becoming even more important for individuals with impaired mobility and cognitive function. During the bathing process the resident or patient can be encouraged to take part and wash as much of himself as possible. This provides an opportunity to help maintain dignity and a level of independence.
