An Occupational Therapist’s view

The Gemini range offers the same same height-adjustable feature as the Aries range but with the addition of an integrated height adjusting platform. The integrated platform, which can be raised/lowered independently from the rest of the bath, allows the bather and carer complete control regarding the level of submergence in water, whilst at the same time adjusting the bath to an appropriate carer height.

This is even more critical with the Gemini range as the platform can double up as a changing table, negating the need for two pieces of equipment when space and funds are limited. Eliminating the need to transfer from bath to changing table can reduce the number of transfers benefiting both client and carer.  

The platform allows postural supports to be used where required and its six positional options for backrest and footrest provide excellent flexibility making it justifiable to DFG budget holders and financial deputies/case managers alike.

The two models (1700 and 2000) support use in smaller spaces and cost effectiveness with room for growth respectively.

There is potential, depending on the individual risk assessment for a mobile hoist to be used when the bath is raised, potentially allowing you to delay grant requests for ceiling track systems if adaptation budgets are stretched or even in the long-term if this is deemed the most appropriate outcome.
