Personal Hygiene for the Obese Now Within Reach
Posted by Pamela Egan of Wellness and Anti-Aging Clinic

Most relatively fit individuals take for granted the ability to cleanse themselves after using the facilities. However, not everyone enjoys this luxury. For the severely overweight, obese, disabled and persons with limited dexterity, a routine trip to the bathroom can be anything but routine.

Imagine what it would be like if you couldn't reach around to your backside in order to wipe after reigning upon your throne. While most people will never experience such an inconvenience, the mere thought can be enough to give a person chills.

For those who literally cannot wipe --- either because they are too large to reach around or because their arms, back or knees do not bend sufficiently, the absence of personal hygiene is an all-too-unpleasant reality.

Luckily, there are a couple of products now available on the open market that are specifically designed to return to those individuals the ability to experience the cleanliness and personal hygiene the majority of the population has never even envisioned what it would like to be without.

No more rashes or foul odors! Now, thanks to two products known as the Egan Super Bidet and the Long Reach Comfort Wipe, bathroom equality is a realistic possibility for all regardless of shape, size or dexterity.

Here are detailed descriptions of the two products in no particular order:

Long Reach Comfort Wipe: Extended Butt Wiper

The Long Reach Comfort Wipe is an extended self-wiping toilet aide designed to assist people with disabilities, restricted range-of-motion and/or obese people wipe themselves. The Long Reach Comfort Wipe is ergonomically designed to help those who have trouble cleansing themselves after use of the restroom achieve an optimal degree of cleanliness without creating a mess in the process.

This unique toilet aide is 15.75" in length, and features a convenient release button to easily discard toilet paper/tissue, pre-moistened in a quick, sanitary manner.

An argument can be made that the Long Reach is the top extended-reach toilet aide on the market, when one factors in its length, ergonomic design, comfortable surface and unique push-button release mechanism.

This quality-of-life-enhancing bathroom device can be purchased directly from the website of Egan Medical Equipment, and can be found in both the "Personal Aids" and "Cleansing Products" categories.

Egan Super Bidet
