Long reach comfort wipe toilet aid review 2018

The manufacturers of long reach comfort wipe toilet aid describe their product as an answer to personal hygiene when reaching is difficult. And that is exactly what the product does. It helps obese, bariatric and handicapped patient reach their butt even when they have bending problems, have short hands or other complications that make reaching difficult.

Obese and bariatric patients find that reaching their bottoms after visiting the toilet is such a hard task. They therefore require bariatric wiping aid for obese so that they can maintain their hygiene, dignity and respect.

Before I discovered these aids, the patients we were taking care of at the hospice looked gloomy and mostly embarrassed since most had the energy to walk themselves to the toilets but they would have trouble wiping themselves after their number 1 and number 2s.

This created a dense air of uneasiness since the caregivers had to clean them since they were stinking like all the time.

It is then that a friend told me about long reach comfort wipe toilet aid and after a quick google search, I found so many wiping aids for our patients that I was spoilt for choice. Of course, we later settled on just one since it offers value for money, is long and does not bend or break easily and is comfortable to use by the patients.

Wrap up on the long reach comfort wipe toilet aid

While this product might be cool for those on a low budget, it fails to meet our recommended standards since:

  1. It is not durable and you will buy so many within a short period of time
  2. It breaks easily.

Our recommended wiping aid tool is non other than the freedom wand which is cost friendly, durable and comes with three other tools ie.

  1. An ointment pad
  2. Shower loofah
  3. Wiping aid extender.
