Good design award


15th April 2013


Due to its unique and superior design features, Clinell’s Easy Clean Commode has been awarded with the prestigious GOOD DESIGN™ award – the world’s most recognised, and oldest Design Awards program organised annually by The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design in cooperation with the European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies.

Entries for design and innovation, sustainability, creativity, branding, ecologically responsible design, human factors, materials, technology, graphic arts, packaging, and universal design are submitted annually by the world’s leading manufacturers and Fortune 500 companies. Winners are selected from several thousands of applications across Europe, Asia, Africa, North and South America. Companies are awarded the privilege of using the GOOD DESIGN logo on their winning product and related marketing material, as a mark of excellence to be recognised by an international consumer audience.

Key features of our award-winning commode include the smooth moulded, non-porous design of each part, easy move lockable wheels of EasyMove™ and TotalStop™ patented design, 360° rotating and removable footrests which incorporate a patent pending Clip & Slide mechanism. The latex-free seat cover contains no stitching or foam, the durable stainless steel frame and all other materials used are non-stain and resistant to chemical damage. This minimalist design which incorporates some of the latest in design technology allows the chair to be ultra-hygienic, easy to clean and is consequently used by over 40 NHS trusts already.

As a testament to Clinell Easy Clean Commode’s superior design, we can refer to a case study involving a large teaching hospital in the North of England. This hospital trust switched to the Clinell Easy Clean Commode and has seen a significant improvement in the cleanliness of its commodes. According to its own Trust Audits their new commodes have not had a single fail whereas previously they were averaging around 10 fails a month.
