Before I had a tern tray, bathing was both physically and mentally draining and was causing my family concern. Now I shower in confidence and complete safety. I have retained my independence and I feel totally safe giving me and my family peace of mind.
The Tern shower tray is an innovative design manufactured to allow disabled or elderly people to shower independently. The Tern is a rotating, level access shower tray that allows its users to shower sitting down as well as standing up.
It also assists space saving as it requires no turning circle within the bathroom. The transition into a shower chair can be made away from the shower area and provides is a wireless control with a soft start/stop operation with built-in safety timeout, to make it easy to use.
The rotation of the tray makes showering less physically demanding, supporting independent showering and nullifying the necessity for carer assistance when showering with a disability. Despite now showering without assistance, Tern shower tray users believe using the device has halved the time they spend in the shower.
The implementation of a Tern shower tray also supports the users well being and eradicates the possibility of carer related lifting injuries. The space-saving tray allows Adaptio to install them into small bathrooms which were not previously suitable.
Central to the development of the tern shower tray was Sarah Johnson, who herself has relapsing-remitting Multiple Sclerosis. Sarah found that washing independently was increasingly becoming a physical and mental challenge.
Although she did not want to rely on carer assistance, using the shower or bath alone was a dangerous thought, and became a significant cause for concern for her friends and family. Like many others with disabilities, Sarah lives alone, and the Tern shower device allows her to live and shower independently.
The tern shower tray has had an enormous positive impact on Sarah’s life, and can now complete the daily routine of showering with ease. Although Sarah still must deal with the day to day challenges of living with a disability, she has one less worry as she is now able to complete the simple task of showering with the rotating Tern shower tray.
Using a body dryer eliminates the difficulties of drying yourself independently. Our aesthetically pleasing body dryers can be situated discreetly in the back corner of your showering area. Your Adaptio body dryer will also comes with a remote control which can be wall mounted so it is easily accessible. Once pressed, the body dryer will pass warm streams of air flow across your body.
Gradually warming up your bathroom in the process, the constant flow of air even assists in drying the shower tray, further reducing the risk of slipping when leaving the shower.
Not only does the body dryer dry you comfortably and reduce risk of injury, but there are no dirty towels to wash as well!

Biomaster antibacterial protected shower trays are proven to inhibit the growth of bacteria by up to 99.99%.
Bacteria, both good and bad, are a fact of life and they are all around us. Most bacteria are rendered harmless by the protective effects of our immune systems and some are beneficial. But several species of pathogenic bacteria, such as Campylobacter, MRSA, E.coli, Legionella, Listeria and Salmonella can make us ill.
Independently tested in thousands of applications, Biomaster is proven to inhibit the growth of these harmful bacteria and many others, and is exclusively built into our range of Level and Easy access shower trays.
When bacteria come into contact with the shower tray surface, the silver ions prevent them from growing, producing energy or replicating, therefore they die, keeping your shower tray fresher for longer.
Round the clock anti-bacterial product protection for your home.
Biomaster has been proven to inhibit the growth of bacteria by up to 99.99% and is proven to be affective against antibiotic resistant bacteria such as MRSA and VRE.
