Smart Solutions for Making Bathrooms Easier to Use for People with Disabilities

Raised Toilet Seat

Having access to a fully functional bathroom, being able to use our shower and toilet as and when we please with complete ease, is something many of us take for granted. But, for many those with disabilities, as well as for those who have mobility issues or are elderly, bathrooms can be difficult spaces to navigate within their homes. Bathrooms can provide those with disabilities with a big source of difficulty and frustration, and make tasks like having a shower or using your toilet a challenge.

From inaccessible showers to not being able to access their bath, to finding it difficult to sit down on the toilet – those with disabilities can face an uphill battle when it comes to navigating their bathrooms. Here at ISB Mobility, we have put together this post, to outline just some of the smart solutions that you can use to make bathrooms easier to use for those with disabilities. If you’d like to learn more, keep reading and for further information on our disability bathroom products in Dublin – head over to our website. 

Wet Rooms

If you or a loved one is struggling to use your regular bathroom, then you might benefit from having it turned into a wet room. A wet room is where an entire bathroom is made waterproof, and has level floor entry with the water simply falling away into a chrome galley trap in your shower area. This means that you won’t have to worry about stepping over the edge of a bath or shower and that you will be able to use your entire bathroom space freely. They take away the struggles that those with disabilities can experience with regular bathrooms, allowing you to safely use your bathroom without any issues.

Level Access Showers 

Level access showers can also be a fantastic way to make your bathroom more accessible, by taking away the need for you to step into a raised shower tray. A level access shower is when your shower area is completely tanked or sealed to ensure that it is watertight, so none of the water escapes into the rest of the bathroom. This takes the need away for you to step into a raised shower tray, which can be challenging for those with disabilities. They also have enclosures, so the water won’t escape out of your shower space. 

Raised Toilet Seats

For those with disabilities, using a regular toilet seat can be extremely challenging as they may not be able to reach it comfortably. A raised toilet seat can help by reducing the distance that a person has to move when they need to sit down on the toilet. This can make the world of a difference for those with disabilities, as even raising the toilet seat just a few inches can make it a lot easier to sit down on it. They make it easier for you to transfer to and rise from the toilet, increasing your independence and making this small task a lot simpler. 

Shower Seats

Showering can be a hazardous activity for those with disabilities, and can put them at risk of having a fall or injuring themselves whilst in the shower. Shower seats have transformed the way that those with disabilities can use their showers, providing them with a seat that they can comfortably sit on whilst they wash. This means that you will be able to fully sit down whilst you shower, rather than standing for long periods of time. 

Toilet Frames

As well as struggling sitting down on a toilet, those with disabilities can also find it challenging when using their toilets if there isn’t anything for them to grab or hold onto. This can put you at risk of having a fall and potentially injuring yourself, whilst trying to use the bathroom. A toilet frame can be the ideal solution, allowing you to hold on and stay safe whilst using the toilet. A toilet frame can be placed around your toilet, and provides you with support sitting down on the toilet seat.

Highlighting How Ramps Can Help those with Mobility Issues

For those dealing with mobility issues, a disability, or just generally old age – accessing your home, or certain rooms within your home can become a great difficulty. Even getting in and out of your home can be a challenge, and a ramp is a practical solution. Ramps are an essential part of making your home accessible, should you have a wheelchair or a scooter, and they can make everyday activities easier and take away the challenges that you might be facing.

They can also increase safety, and provide you with the independence and confidence that you need to pursue your daily activities. In this post, we discuss how ramps can help those with mobility issues, and allow you to adapt your home to fit your lifestyle. To browse our full range of high-quality house ramps at ISB Mobility, head over to our website today.

  • Making Accessing Your Home Easier 

For those in a wheelchair or a mobility scooter, it can be very challenging to access your home as many of us have a step or a raised floor at the entrance of our homes. Many of us have steps in our homes too, as well as raised landings, and raised showers which can become very difficult to access also. This is where a ramp can help, allowing you to move freely from one place to another without any difficulty getting over a raised step or entrance.

  • Reducing the Risk of Injury 

Injuries and accidents can happen when you are in a wheelchair or scooter, and you are trying to get into certain rooms in your home or the entrance of your home without a ramp. Stairs, curbs, and raised entrances can make it extremely easy for you to injure yourself when you don’t have proper access, which can be potentially life-threatening and especially dangerous for those that live alone. A ramp can help to reduce the risk of injury by providing you with a level surface for accessing rooms in your home, playing a significant role in decreasing the potential for injuries and accidents.

  • Supporting Carers

As well as making accessing your home easier, and reducing the risk of injuries, ramps can also support carers. Not only those in a wheelchair or scooter will benefit from a ramp, but their family, friends, or carers too. Providing support to someone in a wheelchair can be challenging, and without a ramp in place, it can be extremely difficult to get them into their homes and move them around the different rooms. A ramp makes it safer and easier for a carer to help those in a wheelchair move around their home.

Looking to Install a Ramp in your Home?

If you’re looking to install a house ramp in or outside your home, speak to ISB Mobility today? We provide and build ramps to suit your unique requirements, whether you’re searching for a ramp for the entrance to your home, the garden, or the interior of your home, to make accessing your home and its rooms easier, and safer and to help you regain your independence.

We design bespoke ramps that are bespoke to fit your layout of your home and help to make it more accessible for you. Ramps are suitable for a variety of uses, whether you are going to be using them with a mobility scooter or a wheelchair. 

They are built with health and safety in mind and conform to industry standards. As well as installing ramps, we will also provide you with rails and edgings for safety and practicality – which are made of steel, and painted in an anti-rust paint, with the colour of your choice. 

To learn more about having a ramp installed in your home, then get in touch with us today for a quotation. Just fill out our online quotation form, or alternatively, you can give us a call at 01 616 7079 or 045 892 696, or by sending us an email to

How to Enhance the Mobility Capability of your Wetroom

One of the most essential rooms within our homes; sometimes even our businesses, tends to be the bathroom, but in some circumstances something as simple as washing or using the toilet can prove to be a tricky task in itself. With age this is something many of us will notice but this can also be a problem for those with disabilities or conditions that require some extra support.


Although we may really need some extra support in our everyday lives, the one thing that can be particularly difficult is sitting on the toilet, standing back up after sitting on the toilet, supporting ourselves when standing to wash our hands or freely standing in the shower or lifting ourselves out of the bath. 


That being said, surely there must be a way to maintain your independence when it comes to using the facilities within your bathroom without requiring a helping hand from a care assistant or loved one? Well, we are pleased to inform you that there are plenty of ways to stay mobile; even in the bathroom, all thanks to ISB Mobility.

Highlighting the Benefits of Owning a Mobility Scooter

If you are struggling with independent movement, you might be looking for a solution that allows you to get around easily and efficiently without any issues or having to rely on anyone. Luckily, mobility scooters can help, offering those with mobility issues a simple and effective way of getting out and about and helping them to regain their independence. Mobility scooters are similar to wheelchairs, but they are motorised making them easy to use if you suffer from mobility issues or if you’re elderly. 


We have put together this short post to highlight some of the benefits of owning a mobility scooter, and how they can make your life easier. ISB Mobility supplies customers in Ireland with high-quality, affordable mobility scooters, stairlifts, bathroom solutions and other mobility aids.  Read on to learn more, and if you’d like to browse our full range of mobility scooters that you can purchase in Dublin, please visit our website today. 


Allow You to Regain Your Freedom


If you have trouble walking and getting around by yourself, you might end up feeling isolated and trapped in your own home. Mobility issues can make it difficult for people to go outside by themselves, and go about their day independently. You might feel stuck or isolated in your home, and like you can’t get out and experience outdoor life. A mobility scooter gives you your freedom back, allowing you to go shopping, visit places, see friends and family, and much more whenever you want to. 


Giving You Your Independence Back


Mobility scooters also give you your independence back and allow you to go out and lead a normal life. If you suffer from mobility issues, you might currently be having to rely on others to help you get around and leave your home. This can really impact your mental health, and have you feeling like a burden on others and like you can’t function by yourself as you used to. With a mobility scooter, you can be fully independent, and go wherever you want by yourself without needing anyone’s assistance.


Ensuring that You are Safe 


For those with mobility issues or who are elderly, the chance of you having a fall is increased putting you at potential risk of injury when you try to move around by yourself. By travelling on a mobility scooter, you can have the peace of mind that you will be safe and won’t experience any falls due to your mobility issues or your age decreasing your risk of injury. This also gives your family and friends the peace of mind that you are safe, and they don’t have to worry about your safety whenever you leave your home. 


Providing You With a Comfortable Way to Travel


If you have mobility issues, you might have pain in certain areas of your body whether that be your joints or muscles and this can make it uncomfortable to move around by yourself. You might have issues walking or even standing up for too long, which is where a mobility scooter can help. You will be able to sit comfortably for long periods of time with no aches or pains, and won’t have to worry about experiencing pain when moving around or waiting in queues.
