The SS4040 Super Standard FAWSsit™ shower stall is slightly larger than the S2000 Standard model for those that need just a bit more room. For those who find that traditional bathing facilities are difficult or impossible to use, and who may not be able to do remodeling of the bathroom to allow for full accessibility, the SS4040 is the solution. And it costs about 1/10th of a remodel. Great for renters, seniors, hospice patients, individuals with almost any type of permanent or temporary disability for whom showering or bathing is no longer safe or even possible. The SS4040 model is for individuals who are still able to use a standard wheelchair.
The size of the SS4040 is approximately 42” wide by 42” deep, and stands 48” tall. All showers are individually manufactured and size may vary slightly. With this unit, the person to be bathed can be rolled into the shower stall in a standard shower/commode style of wheelchair, or even just a regular wheelchair. Once inside the shower stall, a front support bar is lowered so that the fourth side of the shower pan can be attached for wastewater collection. A front shower curtain may be brought around for the person who is able to do their own bathing or may be left open for easier caregiver access to assist with the bathing.
The source of water for the shower unit is any standard sink faucet. And, there is a pump which pulls the wastewater from the drain pan. There is a hose attached to the pump unit which returns the wastewater to the sink drain for disposal. (See Operations and Maintenance for tips on using and maintaining the FAWSsit™ portable shower.)
