A highly efficient solution for assisted bathing
The Parker® bath enables an efficient bathing cycle and provides a safe, relaxed bathing environment with maximum benefits for the resident/patient.
Parker makes a safe, pleasurable and beneficial bathing experience easily accessible for the resident and ticks all the boxes regarding the practical considerations of time, staff resources and effective system hygiene.
Making tasks easier and safer
A single caregiver can safely manage the entire Parker bathing cycle, which involves no manual lifting, strain or stress. The combination of hand controls, a reclined bathing position and height adjustability means the caregiver can always work at the correct height and close to the resident/patient.
The complete Parker concept includes integration with a number of active and passive lifts in the Arjo range, to create a comprehensive solution for the bathing cycle.
A faster, better bathing cycle
Every aspect of this bathing system is designed to save time. Autofill enables the bath to be filled to a preset level while the caregiver transports the resident/patient.
The easy-to-use system ensures efficient bathing routines. Side entry bath access and mobile aid integration mean smooth transfers with no manual lifting.
Optimum disinfection ensured
The Parker® has an internal integrated disinfection and air spa system; the most time-efficient solution for disinfecting the bath’s external surfaces.
A superior bathing experience
A range of options, such as an air spa and Sound & Vision™, enable you to create a calm, multi-sensory bathroom environment and the ideal conditions for helping residents/patients of all ages to relax.
Parker® is a height-adjustable reclining sit bath designed to improve efficiency in the assisted bathing and showering of adult residents at care facilities.
