    Good to hear peoples view about clos-o-mat. I am getting one soon but am concerned about its height.Do most people get wheeled on to them or have sufficient arm strength to get off?I cant write much at the moment but hope to get dragon software working again.My arms are quite weak and my legs are not good

    Hi Paul

    When my closomat was put in my OT ordered a shower chair that should have fitted over the toilet. But it didn't and was too big for me anyway. I had to give it back. I can still weight bear, so my carers help me on and off.

    Hi Paul

    My closomat has been raised, so that's OK. Don't know what will happen if my legs give out. I've had the worst OT's. They have never measured anything correctly.

    I hope everything works out for you.

    Best wishes

    For the benefit of those coming to this thread in future, I discover that the Clos-o-mat and Gerberit are full joint toilet and bidet systems wheras the Hyundai and BioBidet systems are self-contained seating systems which replace the existing toilet seat while continuing to use the original sanitary ware. The price of the complete toilet / bidet systems seems to be aroung the 2000 mark, the price of the replacement seating systems is around 400.

    I have now had over a month to get used to the Hyundai. How did I ever manage without it?

    Had the Closomat rep round today, 2,400 for the toilet and 600 installation....... Brilliant product but daylight robbery in my opinion especially in view it doesn't look like the council will assist in any form. What price is dignity eh?

    I believe they were originally made for rich people too posh to wipe, but found they were more popular for people with disabilities! I will be looking into getting one for my extension when its done, if theres any funds left

    Don't get me started, well ok then...... 3k for a toilet, 2-3k for a wet room, 6-8k for a lift, 5k upfront cost for mobility car to get a scooter in, widen doors n add ramps for wheel chair et al 1-1.5k.

    Pay tax n NI all your life, won't see a penny of all pension payments to govt, never claimed any benefits then get **** all help from the govt when you need it. A seriously unhappy bunny at the moment grrr.
