Impey has released the new Slimford Horseshoe Seat, an innovative range addition designed to solve the potential issues that can arise through the use of awkward, intrusive and potentially unhygienic padded shower seating.

Impey’s original Slimfold Seat was launched in April 2014 and saw success in the market, prompting Impey to extend the range and introduce a new horseshoe-shaped version to the portfolio.

Group Sales Director, Liam Ryan said: “The new Slimfold Horseshoe seat is a revelation in the healthcare showering solutions market. All other wall-mounted horseshoe seats that I am aware of, incorporate unhygienic and potentially uncomfortable padding. The unique functionality and adaptability of the Impey Slimfold Horseshoe Seat are going to make a marked difference to the showering experience of many individuals and their carers.”

The new seat has been tested to withstand weights of up to 300kg (47 stones), over 100kg more than other seats on the market and is supplied pre-assembled for a simple install. A minimum installation height of 415mm makes the Slimfold Horseshoe Seat the lowest seat currently available, allowing for easier access for both users and carers when moving in and out of the showering area.

The self-cushioning seat works by trapping air between the two watertight surfaces (skin and the seat itself), leaving no crevices or gaps where dirt or bacteria can accumulate.

It is available in three colour options: white-stone, sky-blue and grey, to coordinate with existing amenities and comes with a generous lifetime guarantee; ideal for use in care facilities, hospitals and domestic adaptations.
