The Hygie Commode/Bedside Chair systems follow the same evolution as the set of best practices in prevention of nosocomial infections (HAI). For example, commodes with upholstered seats and solder joints make cleaning difficult, and do not guarantee successful disinfection, and should no longer have their place in health care institutions.
Our two chair models are the most recommended and are used in hospitals across Canada.
Light, 360 rotation and adjustable.
Use with Hygienic Covers to solidify 700ml or more of body fluid within 30 seconds
Preferred Commode chairs in Canada by Prevention and Control professionals
Can be used directly on top of toilet bowls or next to patient’s bed to save time.
I just read the article in the Innovation section of Les Affaires. After literally "camping" at Charles-Lemoyne three times in 2007-2008 to watch over my father and my brother, I can testify that the risk situations described in the article are unfortunately the reality in hospitals. And when you choose to take care of a sick person at home, having access to such products can only help. Bravo and good luck for the future!

Several staff members indicated that they really like the new Hygie bag because it prevents the risk of splashing themselves when dumping urine or feces. Some units have started using the Hygie bag on all patients requiring a bedpan, rather than just for specific indications, to prevent passing infections to other patients. In addition, it has reduced the odor in patient care areas associated with frequent handling of stool and bedpans.
