VertaClean: The World’s First Senior Shower Foot Scrubber
Did you know that slips and falls are the most common type of accidents? The most dangerous activities in the home for people of all ages include showering and bathing. Almost 80% of falls in the home happen in the bathroom, and more than 65% of emergency room visits result from injuries in or near the tub or shower.
While washing one’s feet is necessary for hygienic reasons, it’s also potentially dangerous.
Practicing good hygiene shouldn’t be risky! Now, with the VertaClean all-in-one standing senior citizen foot scrubber, no one has to put themselves at risk to get clean feet.
No more standing on one foot or trying to balance on a slippery bathroom floor. With the VertaClean, users never have to bend over to wash their feet, either. The VertaClean geriatric shower foot scrubber is easy to use, safe, convenient, and best of all, designed with seniors in mind.
What Is the VertaClean Shower Foot Cleaner?
The VertaClean is designed to keep users standing while they hold on to a secure handle at the top of the scrubber, enabling them to maintain their balance and stay safe.
Soft, specially designed brushes on the floor clean the feet with the help of Lux Foaming Foot Wash.
With a VertaClean, a user can clean between the toes, the top of the feet, and the bottom of them, without increasing the risk of slipping and falling.
The VertaClean foot cleaning system is the only type of shower assistance for elderly people of its kind, allowing everyone to enjoy completely clean feet while they stay safe.
Who Should Use the VertaClean?
Elders are often unable to clean their feet on a regular, frequent basis, especially if they live in senior care homes and nursing facilities. The elderly are a critical part of society and their loved ones’ lives, and they deserve the best care, especially concerning having simple hygienic needs met.
Shower assistance for elderly people is imperative for helping reduce the 80% of senior falls that occur in the bathroom. The VertaClean delivers safety without sacrificing basic hygienic needs. Also, a main concern of the elderly is retaining their independence as they grow older. The VertaClean helps them do exactly while they remain safe.
This makes the VertaClean not only perfect for the home, but also one of the best shower helpers for senior living homes.
Clean Feet for All
Anyone and everyone can use the VertaClean. Slips and falls have no age limit or height limit; they do not discriminate. This foot scrubber system is a valuable addition to any shower, but it’s especially recommended for:
- People with disabilities
- People with poor balance
- The elderly
- People who are overweight or obese
- Pregnant women
Anyone with any kind of mobility or balance challenges can take advantage of the VertaClean. In addition, people recovering from an illness or injury also find the VertaClean system easy to use.
It’s also great for children and is a fun way for them to clean those little feet!
How the VertaClean Senior Shower Foot Scrubber Works
With age, mobility and balance naturally wane, making the shower and tub even more dangerous places, especially when it comes to the bending over and balancing on a slippery floor required for foot cleaning.
Unlike other elderly shower aids, the VertaClean is a complete system that is also compact and takes up very little space in the shower. It has a strong, stable handle and replaceable cleaning surfaces with hundreds of soft bristles for scrubbing.
Using the VertaClean is as easy as four simple steps:
- Moisten the brushes
- Dispense the foot wash
- Rub your feet on the soft bristles
To use the VertaClean, let some water moisten the soft cleaning bristles on the foot brushes. A special foaming foot wash is used instead of soap, which is dispensed onto the brushes with a gentle squeeze of the handle.
Once the Lux Foaming Foot Wash has been dispensed, just hold onto the handle for stability and rub the bottom of your foot over the brush.
Follow by putting your foot in the dual-bush side and moving your foot across the soft cleaning bristles for 5-10 seconds. That’s it!
Where Is the VertaClean Best Used?
If you’ve been searching for ideal shower helpers for senior living homes, the VertaClean is it. It’s the perfect geriatric shower foot scrubber for use in a wide variety of settings, including:
- Long-term care facilities
- Rehabilitation centers
- At home
- Assisted living homes
- Senior living homes
The VertaClean is easy to move and doesn’t weigh much, so it can be used in multiple bathrooms if needed. The long cleaning bristles reach between the toes, around the toenails, and in between all the creases in the feet to deliver a truly deep clean.
With the specially formulated Lux Foaming Foot Wash and unique bristle system, the VertaClean is better at wiping away dirt, odor-causing bacteria, and debris than both loofahs and standard washcloths.
Healthy Reasons to Pay Better Attention to Your Feet
People of every age generally do not pay enough attention to the care of their feet. In fact, some polls have found that up to 25% of people never wash their feet in the shower.
Whether a person wears open-toe sandals often or they wear closed-toe shoes and socks for much of the time, dirt, bacteria, and other offenders can easily cause painful foot conditions and even some diseases.
The CDC warns that lack of proper foot care can lead to conditions such as:
- Fungal nail infections
- Athlete’s foot
- Trench foot
- Toenail fungus
- Staph infections
- Plantar warts
In addition, bromodosis can develop, which is a strong foot odor caused by excessive sweat and a buildup of bacteria. By using the VertaClean, seniors can reduce the chances of these conditions, improve circulation in their feet, and enjoy better foot health overall.
