Automation for Humanity Ltd (Sit n Shower)
At Automation for Humanity, our mission, is to enable Aged Care to be provided at a fraction of current costs and manpower.
We do this through designing and selling low-cost Automated Caregiving Devices – to handle the most strenuous caregiving tasks & ADLs: bathing, patient transfer and toileting. These tasks are injury-inducing and often require multiple caregivers to provide.
Our first product, Sit & Shower, is an automatic bathing device that significantly enhances an individuals ability to bathe alone.
Bathing is a sentinel event in the disabling process – and the loss of bathing autonomy is associated with a 5X increase in other disabilities!It is also heavily associated with quality of life and independence whereas bathing interventions have been linked with decreased hours of care.
We are currently also in the process of developing devices to automatically move a patient from a bed to a wheelchair – without physical assistance – and a self-driving wheelchair to bring them around the house. Feasibility prototypes of these two devices have been demonstrated, and final products will be available in ~2 years
