The Excel 600 can be enhanced with the addition of a Detachable Seat and Transporter; improving the bathing experience for both the bather and carer.
This allows the person being bathed to be put on the seat in the bedroom and simply transferred on the transporter to the bathroom and then gently lifted into the bath, without the need for further lifting or handling of the bather. This is better for both the bather and for the carer. The operation is very simple. The Transporter is pushed gently up to the side of the bath and the magnets on the bath panel and on the back of the transporter then simply connect to ensure it is in the correct position for accepting the seat. The seat is swung out of the bath and lowered on to the Transporter. At this point, the arm disconnects from the seat and the Transporter can be moved away from the bath and taken to the bedroom. Returning to the bathroom with the bather, the Transporter is again connected to the bath via the magnets.
The arm is raised and the arm engages with the seat and lifts it off the Transporter; no locks to unfasten, no transporter to dis-engage. Once the seat is lifted up and into the bath, the transporter can be moved away.
