Reduced functionality need not limit a person’s development. For more than 35 years, the keep living philosophy has been a guiding principle for Pressalit Care’s development of flexible kitchen and bathroom solutions for people with disabilities. Thanks to its research-based knowledge, Pressalit Care is market leader within developing and marketing the most innovative bathroom and kitchen solutions (helping aids) for people with physical disabilities. The goal is a better life for people with mobility disabilities, a better working environment for those who help them and a better, long-term solution for those who need to invest.
The Pressalit Care PLUS system is unique. With it we create such flexible solutions that they can be adapted to all kinds of bathrooms and every type of user situation. The core of the system is the track. Using both vertical and horizontal tracks, the individual products can be moved to exactly the position required in each situation – without the use of tools. This means that its flexibility can be fully exploited by both users and cares. The philosophy behind the flexible bathroom is that the room should be tailored to the users and not the other way around.
Albertshøj was developed through a collaboration between care staff, management team, JJW Arkitekter, Pressalit Care and Albertslund Municipality. The result is a smoothly run facility, which has taken into consideration the wishes expressed by those who live and work there. The bathroom must meet the functional capabilities of those requiring care and those who are independent. There must be freedom of movement for one or two carers, so that they have plenty of space to work. It must be possible to use wheelchairs, shower chairs and rollators in the bathroom and at the same time be as aesthetically pleasing and tidy as possible.
