Winner of the GOOD DESIGN™ Award. Our Easyclean Commode is made of smooth, durable and non-porous plastic parts for easy wiping. It works with either pulp or plastic bedpans, can be placed over a toilet or used as a shower chair. No nuts, screws or bolts means fewer places for pathogens to hide, allowing you to get the best out of your disinfectant products.

Product code: CCOM1

Your new commode comes complete with backrest, seat, seat cover and disposable pulp bedpan tray. If using as an over the toilet chair, remove the bedpan tray.

Under the commode you have: 1. Armrests: left and right. 2. Footrests: left (L) and right (R) with corresponding frame locks. 3. Plastic bedpan tray.

Align the metal peg with recess on the armrest, slide the armrest onto hinge and carefully rotate down. Make sure not to force the arm. When fitted correctly the arm will drop down by itself – be careful of your fingers. Repeat for the other armrest.

Clip footrest from back (1) with rest pointing outwards, turn it 90º to rest pointing towards you (2), slide clip into place and turn a further 90º (3). Repeat for the other footrest.

Remove the disposable pulp bedpan tray and replace with the plastic bedpan tray. If using as an over the toilet chair, simply remove the bedpan tray.

Why are commodes important in infection control?

Commodes are frequently used in hospitals and are often used by multiple patients on a ward meaning there is a chance of cross-infection between patients, particularly Clostridium difficile infections. Commodes, therefore, must be effectively decontaminated between every use. This can lead to problems as commodes are notoriously difficult to disinfect and very commonly harbour pathogens that get transmitted between patients

What prompted GAMA to launch a commode?

GAMA recognised a problem with existing commodes on the market in that they are very hard to clean and run the risk of transmitting pathogens between patients. Chlorine was often being used on commodes, causing damage to the surfaces. This itself is an infection control risk as pathogens will accumulate in the crevices and will be very hard to remove. GAMA therefore decided to launch a commode that would revolutionise the sector and be the first commode in the world to have no nuts, screws or bolts as these are all very common sites for pathogens to get into and are also hard to clean. Thanks to our specially-designed, easy to clean commode, the risk of transmission will be greatly reduced. Additionally, the Easyclean Commode is designed to be resistant to staining, rusting and damage from the various chemicals used to disinfect it after use.
