What water source is needed for the B5000 Shower?
The source of water for the B5000 shower unit is any standard sink faucet. And, there is a pump mounted on the outside of the shower stall which pulls the waste water from the drain pan. There is a hose attached to the pump unit which returns the wastewater to the sink drain for disposal. (See Operations and Maintenance for tips on using and maintaining the FAWSsit™ portable shower.)
How do you use the B5000?
With this unit, the person to be bathed can be rolled into the shower stall in a Bariatric shower/commode style of wheelchair. Once inside the shower stall, a front support bar is lowered so that the fourth side of the shower pan can be attached for wastewater collection. A front shower curtain may be brought around for the person who is able to do their own bathing, or may be left open for easier caregiver access to assist with the bathing.
