Electronic Assistive Technology (EAT) uses 'clever technology to easily meet simple requirements' giving control and independence to disabled and elderly people who may be totally dependent on others to undertake everyday tasks. Utilising one central system enables the user to control electrical equipment such as phones, intercoms, lamps and home entertainment systems as well as a wide range of automated equipment including door openers, curtain openers and community alarms. Gaining the capacity to undertake these simple tasks we take for granted can be massively liberating and can have a transformational impact on individuals lives.

Security is of utmost importance in any home but where access for carers is necessary home security is often compromised; installation of an intercom system can resolve this. The security and intercom system enables you to open your door remotely using a secure radio receiver which can be activated by various transmitters determined by individual needs.

Mobile Hoisting is a specially designed hoist for lifting and moving users in a supported 'sling' which comes in a variety of sizes to accommodate the user. The hoist system is situated on the floor and enables the carer to lift the user from, for example, the bed into a wheel chair or vice versa with little strain or effort for the user or carer minimising the risk of injury to either.

Level Access is important to enable access for the less abled and wheel chair users both to the home and in public spaces. The installation of a level access door is a straight forward and cost effective way of providing safe and easy access to a building.

Widening the doors in your home can significantly aid movement in your home, allowing free and unassisted movement between rooms if you are a user of a wheelchair or electric scooter. iHUS will undertake a site visit to inspect the building, then using our extensive knowledge in home adaptations make our recommendations on what is feasible for your property.

Height adjustable basins are suitable for use either seated or standing; additionally we can provide the option of the sink being moved from side to side. They improve hygiene and dignity by moving the basin within reach of a person using a wheelchair or on a toilet and assist carers as they can move the sink to the user and out of the way creating more space for safe transfer. They are also known as cantilever basins.

A Walk in Shower differs slightly from a Wet Room in that it still has a cubicle but unlike a normal shower there is no door to open or close. This level of easy access is perfect for the elderly or disabled as you can simply walk into your shower, meaning you can use any support you need with both hands without having to navigate the door. The styles to choose from are endless.

Wet rooms have become increasingly popular as easy access bathing solutions; it removes the need for a seperate shower enclosure and steps to and from the shower in slippery conditions particularly beneficial for the less abled. We design them in such a way that they maintain a modern and stylish feel whilst providing easy access and a safe bathing solution which is easy to clean.

Fitting pull down baskets to wall cupboards and installing corner carousels further enhance accessible kitchens making storage areas easier to reach.

Being able to adjust the height of work tops and wall cupboards makes the kitchen environment more accessible for everyone; they enable an individual to be self-reliant where they previously required the assistance of others, they assist in communal and training kitchens in which several people with different capabilities have to work together comfortably at the same time and also in kitchens in child care institutions where both children and adults need to manage together.

Our framed freestanding worktops and tables also provide adjustable height work space and are available as an alternative where the wall structure is not strong enough to support our wall mounted models.
