    I assumed the seat lifting device was some sort of lifting function. Got that wrong !!
    I will still go for the Bio Bidet though. Thanks for putting me straight.

    Regards

    If you need a reclining shower chair in the future it won't fit over the Bio-bidet. That's why I have gone for the Closomat with funding assistance from the MNDA.

    Hi Steve, if you are considering a Clos-o-mat I have a new one for sale which has never been used. Cost Nearly 3000 will accept 1500. Bill

    Hi guys,

    We are also having all these problems! Had bio bidet fitted which we now realise won't work with the shower chair and can't afford 3k for a Gerberit or closomat. MNDA have offered 1500. Billfriend - if Big Steve doesn't take up your offer, we will happily buy the clos o mat from you! Will you keep us posted?

    Hi Miss Bloomsbury and welcome to the forum;

    Steve's post was quite a while ago so. Can I ask why the Bio Bidet doesn't work with the shower chair, people have done it by removing the sensor on the seat that requires you to sit on it. It is a recognized modification.

    You can also get some chairs with skirts that sit in to the loo seat to stop most spillages.

    Love terry

    Hi Terry, thanks for your interest. The shower chair won't go back far enough over the bio bidet because the controls are raised and in the way. So my husband finds it impossible to position over the toilet bowl. A Gerberit has controls under the seat level with the tollet bowl. It causes him a great deal of anxiety but we really can't afford to pay 3k! and the MNDA Assoc. Have been generous but only offered 1.5k. Which is why I'm interested in BILL's clos o mat. I do know that if you use a strip of copper paper, stuck on the sensor part of the bio bidet seat, it will override the sensor control and be permanently 'on'

    Thanks Miss B;

    I thought that some chairs would go over or fit OK but I'm not positive. Where do you stick the copper strip and can you put a photo up if possible. I doubt you can so don't worry,

    Love Terry

    Miss B,

    Can the OT get him a height adjustable or higher shower chair? Much cheaper than new loo.
