FreedomWand Personal Hygiene & Toilet Aid

Shared by freedomwand on 2016-01-12 19:22

About the solution

Let's help people keep their dignity and independence with personal hygiene!

For example, if a patient is going to get ankle surgery the doctor would prescribe crutches so they could follow their care instructions of no weight baring and be independent. What if a patient has to get hip or spinal surgery. What does the doctor prescribe to help them not bend or twisting more than 90 degrees? Would they have someone else take care of their personal hygiene for them?

This is where the FreedomWand could help people with limited range of motion keep their dignity and independence with personal hygiene. What makes the FreedomWand different from other toileting aids is that it is:
• 4 Tools In One -- Not only does it hold toilet tissue, it also holds a shaver, loofah, and ointment applicator
• Multi-Length -- The FreedomWand can be used at 7'', 14'', and 21''. Extra extensions are available to purchase to add an additional 4'' to the FreedomWand.
• Portable -- The FreedomWand comes apart into 3 pieces and comes with a 100% cotton carry bag making it easy for people to live an active and independent life.

About the author

The reason I invented the FreedomWand was from personal experience because in June 9, 2006 I was in a car accident where I broke my back. I experienced humiliation and frustration as other assisted in keeping me clean. The occupational therapists had little to offer that was convenient and sanitary; therefore, I began creating my own tool, in hopes of regaining independence and personal dignity. The FreedomWand™ is the result of this struggle. Next time an occupational therapist is asked, "How do I reach...?" they will have a much better answer!
