Project Description

This study aimed to examine the feasibility of novel electronic toilet-top bidets in dementia-specific residential aged care.

In addition, it aimed to develop measures and trial: acceptance of the bidet by residents, including changes to behaviours of concern during toileting; the ability of the bidet to effectively clean post voiding; to explore the role of the bidet as adjunct to managing incontinence; and changes in incontinence pad use.

Additionally staff acceptance of the bidet and ease of use in routine care was investigated.
