Flexibility at the touch of a button.
Pressalit’s adjustable solutions are helping residents at Blackwood House live their lives to the fullest.
Blackwood House - Appartments in Dundee with CleverCogs technology - Exterior
Blackwood’s acclaimed development at Glamis Road in Dundee features six apartments that have been specially adapted for disabled residents using advanced smart CleverCogs technology to assist in their everyday tasks.
Blackwood turned to Pressalit knowing its reputation as a leader in accessible bathroom and kitchen design, to ensure that these important rooms in the home benefit from the most flexible, functional and ergonomically designed equipment.
The innovative CleverCogs technology is a digitally enhanced care system, created by Blackwood, to keep people independent, in control and in their home. Centred around a touch screen home hub, it works across all aspects of an individual’s care, housing and support needs. Within the home, at the touch of a button, the hub allows everyday tasks to be made so much easier.
In the kitchen the CleverCogs technology means residents can readily raise or lower the height of Pressalit’s Indivo rise and fall kitchen work surfaces and wall mounted cupboards with a simple touch; the Indivo lifters also allow the wall cupboards to move forwards and downwards for easy access.
The fully adapted bathrooms include the Pressalit PLUS wall-mounted track system, which sets new standards in accessible bathroom design. Combining flexibility with functionality, the unique system of vertical and horizontal tracks offers new and improved height and horizontal adjustment enabling the layout of the bathroom to be future proofed against both the long term changing needs of individual users, as well as the multiple needs of different users.
The PLUS wall track system allows easy movement of individual bathroom elements such as wash basin, shower seat and support arms. The horizontal track makes it possible to move these elements along the wall, making space for carers and wheelchair access, while the vertical track enables simple height adjustment to accommodate both standing and seated users.
The bathrooms are designed with generous turning space so that wheelchair users can manoeuvre easily, and carers have sufficient space for working. The bathrooms are bright and modern, embracing the concept of a contemporary, versatile and functional bathroom.
“The Pressalit range fits perfectly in the new homes as the modern designs are practical, customisable and a far cry from the clinical looking adaptations of the past.
The bathrooms in particular come in bright modern colours with contemporary lines and change the perception of an adapted house.”
