While its benefits for seniors and the physically disabled are many, the Spaloo is designed for the entire family, and its water jet technology and warming feature deliver great comfort, convenience and health advantages to users of any age. Among other things, you can say goodbye to sitting on a cold toilet seat on a winter morning.
“As its name implies, the Spaloo is close to a spa experience in your own bathroom,” says Bruce Santhuff, president of Spaloo. “I was blown away by the comfort, convenience and sanitary nature of this kind of toilet seat when I travelled overseas. For some reason, this hasn’t taken off in American culture yet, but I’m a big believer that once people try it, they will be convinced. And especially older Americans seeking to remain independent.”
The cleansing nature of water, combined with the fact that there’s no rubbing of paper involved, makes Spaloo a virtual cure-all for a host of common maladies, including hemorrhoids, incontinence, constipation and urinary tract infections.
Hemorrhoid sufferers, for example, will benefit from the non-invasive treatment, which both relieves irritation and maximizes hygiene, washing away germs that could cause further discomfort or infection. And since the warm water and gentle spray help the muscles within the anus to relax, users experience decreased straining and a sense of relaxation. This in turn can help stimulate bowel movements in a much more natural way than with medications.
For some, it's the difference between relative good health and painful ailments. “My mother, who has Parkinson’s, was prone to infections,”
Spaloo also helps people suffering from severe, life-altering ailments such as paralysis, arthritis, Muscular Dystrophy, Multiple Sclerosis, Crohn's Disease, stroke, IBD / IBS, obesity and vision problems. Spaloo is great for people recovering from general surgery, colorectal or Carpal Tunnel surgery, or anyone who is otherwise disabled.
Spaloo works like this: upon the press of a button, a wand-like appendage emerges from the toilet seat and sprays a gentle stream of warm water. The nozzle’s position can be customized for any individual, and there is a child mode, power wash, and pulse and massage settings.
Because water pressure is variable, it does a more thorough job of cleaning than paper, and there are separate sprays for back wash and front wash for women.
When washing is complete, an adjustable-temperature air dryer automatically goes to work. All the functions are controlled with easily accessible and clearly marked icon buttons on the side of the seat. There’
Since Spaloo simply replaces the existing toilet seat, it’s easy to install. Once it’s in place, hook up the water supply with an included T-connector, then plug it into a nearby grounded outlet. The only tools required are a screwdriver, locking plier, and wrench.
The average American uses 57 sheets of toilet paper a day; collectively, we burn through 36.5 billion rolls each year. Tossing all the toilet paper in America would save 15 million trees, 17.3 terawatts of electricity, and more than 473 billion gallons of water annually; the environmental impact of bidets is minimal in comparison.
