A question of comfort and dignity
When entering a care environment for a short or a long-term stay, reliance on others to assist with personal hygiene needs can significantly impact a person’s wellbeing. Whether it’s showering or bathing, maintaining dignity and comfort for patients and residents while working safely to reduce the risk of injury is essential.
Caring for hygiene needs across care settings

Improving safety of caregivers
Our hygiene solutions are designed to be intuitive and easy to use, ensuring you are able to perform essential daily hygiene tasks safely and efficiently while providing a comfortable and dignified experience for your patient or resident.
Clinical and economic evidence
Important factors in hygiene care are static load and time consumption for the caregiver, as well as dignity, well being and safety for the resident/patient.
Clinical evidence has shown that taking a hot bath has a lot of benefits including; pain relief, enhanced mobility, reduction of symptoms in skin disease, as well as improved psychological wellbeing.
A study was performed to find out the greatest influence on static load and on the time needed to wash the patient/resident.
A peer-reviewed study has shown less postural stress when working with Carevo, compared with a traditional high-low shower trolley.
