Toilte4me
Study on personalised toilets supporting active living in (semi-) public environments

Challenge

The Toilet4me project provides a smart toilet solution for ageing-well. It addresses ageing people and persons of all ages with impairments/disabilities and their needs when using a toilet outside home in public or semi-public environments (e.g. in community centres, town halls, shopping malls, museums, theatres, hotels etc.).

Solution

The vision of Toilet4me is to develop and provide ICT-enhanced toilet systems which are able to adapt themselves to the individual needs and preferences of the person currently using the toilet. The basic idea is a motorised toilet able to support sitting, stand-to-sit and sit-to-stand transition with the possibility to use preferred settings as used at home.
