Changing Places Toilets

What are Changing Places Toilets?

Changing Places Toilets are designed so that they are completely accessible and provide sufficient space and specialist equipment for people who are not able to use the toilet independently. They must be an extra facility, in addition to the accessible toilets for independent use. Standard accessible WC’s are designed for access by a standard wheelchair, but they are unlikely to provide adequate space for a powered wheelchair, or a wheelchair with additional head or leg support fittings. Standard accessible WC’s are also only designed for independent use by the individual and there is usually insufficient room to accommodate a carer /carers if the user requires assistance.

Changing Places give people with profound and multiple disabilities who are unable to use a standard WC or accessible toilet, a safe and dignified facility that provides everything they may need. Without these vital facilities, carers are forced to change loved ones on the floor or be confined to their own homes.

Why do we need Changing Places?

Almost 1 in 5 people have a disability and ensuring we provide suitable toilet facilities are vital to help create equality in our society. Many make the conscious decision not to visit somewhere if they feel they do not have a clean, suitable environment to toilet. These include individuals with profound and multiple learning disabilities, those with cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, spina bifida, motor neurone disease, older people or those who have acquired a brain injury. These are the people who need better-equipped public toilets, and if there are no Changing Places, then their needs aren’t being met. Without these facilities people with disabilities and their families cannot take part in activities that most of us take for granted.

Changing Places Solution

Changing Places facilities provide more than the standard accessible toilets. Offering more space and additional equipment ensuring there is room for a powered wheelchair or multiple carers to easily help the user.

An overview of the equipment expected in these facilities include:

  • Full room covering ceiling hoist system providing access between changing bench, basin and toilet
  • Height adjustable, adult sized changing table/bench
  • Peninsular toilet
  • Height adjustable washbasin
  • Privacy screen or curtain to allow some privacy
  • Wide tear-off paper roll to cover the bench
  • A large waste bin for disposable pads
  • Grab rails where appropriate to provide necessary support
  • Emergency alarm cord to summon help if necessary
  • A non-slip floor
  • A safe & clean environment
  • Showering facility (optional)

SeeUs: More Efficient & Accessible Public Transport

It happens again and again that buses do not stop at the bus stop, be it because of location, heavy fog, rain or other reasons.

With SeeUs, Swiss Innovation Lab helps you to avoid leaving any waiting passengers behind. With its integrated LED lights and wireless communication, SeeUs informs approaching buses of passengers waiting as well as if boarding support is required thus increasing driver awareness and accessibility.

SeeUs Hardware – Robust, Powerful & Easy to Install

SeeUs is made of robust IP65 sheet metal housing.
Thanks to its rotating design, the LED unit is always pointing in the right direction while the solar panel can be optimized for best angle. SeeUs is powered by solar panel so there is no need for any power installation. As a backup it is equipped with a LiFeYPo4 battery for up to 3 months operation.
Thanks to the optional NB-IoT connectivity, the unit can be connected to the SeeUs cloud based monitoring system assuring that everything is working properly.
SeeUs can be configured with different LEDs ranging from 23mm to 88mm in diameter. The LEDs can be adjusted in intensity, dimmed at night and programmed with different flashing patterns. LEDs according to EN 12352 is available as option. Also available as options are LEDs on both sides as well as LED for providing light at a station.

  • SeeUs has been designed to increase driver awareness and make public transport more efficient and accessible.
  • The system consists of the Master and LED Unit, the Push Button and the optional Vehicle Unit.
  • The Push Button activates the LED Unit which informs approaching buses of the stop request. In addition to the optically flashing LEDs, the device can also exchange information over Bluetooth with approaching buses.
  • SeeUs increases awareness and reduces stress for the driver. It makes sure that the driver is informed of waiting passengers and if boarding support is required. With this the overall travel experience is improved.

Applications 

Increasing Driver Awareness

SeeUs has been designed to increase driver awareness and make public transport more efficient and accessible. The system basically consists of the SeeUs Control and LED Unit, the Push Button and the optional Vehicle Unit.

The Push Button activates the LED Unit which informs approaching buses of the stop and/or support request(s). In addition to the optically flashing LEDs, the device can also send the request via our cloud server to the approaching buses (requires either vehicle unit or server to server connectivity).

SeeUs increases awareness and reduces stress for the driver. It makes sure that the driver is informed of waiting passengers and if boarding support is required. With this the overall travel experience is improved.

Real-Time Passenger Information

To further enhance the travel experience, we are adding real-time bus departure information to SeeUs. Leveraging on the existing connectivity and open data API integration in combination with the latest e-paper technology we can offer both integrated and standalone real-time display solutions.

The current lineup is based on 7.5” e-paper with 800 x 480 resolution and a GW100 protective glass. It comes with front light and partial refresh and supports operation in -25 to +70 degrees Celsius. Power is taken from the SeeUs solar panel and rechargeable battery.

SeeUs Central Unit

SeeUs Pushbutton

SeeUs Vehicle Unit

Keeping the driver informed

The SeeUs vehicle unit is an android app running in kiosk mode. It detects broadcasts from SeeUs stops and informs the driver accordingly i.e. waiting passengers and if support is requested.

It also reacts on onboard activation from the SeeUs app enabling a passenger to trigger stop and deboarding support directly from the app. The communication is made possible via an integrated Bluetooth Low Energy module.

On project basis the vehicle unit can also be made ITXPT compatible.

Multiple triggering device choices – tailored to your use.

SeeUs supports a wide range of triggering devices including pushbutton, infrared presence detector, tag and MyAid app for smartphones. All of these devices work with Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and are battery powered. This caters for flexible and easy installation.

The SeeUs Pushbutton enclosure is made in strong polycarbonate and is available with one or two pushbuttons. Battery life is over 10 years.

The SeeUs Tag comes with a replaceable battery allowing 3 years of operation. It has an integrated accelerometer for optimized broadcasting.

Modern Mobility System

The European population is ageing. There will be 75 million people over the age of 65 in Europe in 2020, and 88 million in 2030. The share of people aged 65+ should increase from 17.5% of the population in 2010 to 29.5% in 2060.

This requires reconsidering existing mobility systems in order to meet the needs of older people and help to combat social exclusion and support independent living especially for those with reduced mobility.

For elderly and disabled, the SeeUs system can be complemented with the SeeUs App. With this the LED unit can be triggered just by being in proximity of predefined bus stops automatically informing favorite bus lines about special needs such as boarding assistance. The SeeUs App also supports stop and support requests to be initiated from the app while onboard. Part of the functionality is also available as a bluetooth tag.

Handling Pick-up Requests from a Specific Stop

Thanks to the optional NB-IoT communication module, status and events can be uploaded to the SeeUs Monitoring System in real-time. With this SeeUs can handle pick-up requests from a specific stop and generate notifications / commands triggering execution. For example, autonomous busses can be triggered for pick-up at a specific station. Another example is Public transport on sea.

Typically, public transport on sea is relying on old fashion semaphores to flag that someone is to be picked up at a specific dock. With SeeUs such requests can be made either via push button or App triggering notification to approaching ferries.

For the latter use case, SeeUs improves fuel economy and reduces wear on engines thus increases the life of ships. It shortens travel time and allows time tables to be optimized. Last but not the least, it has a positive environmental impact by contributing to reducing noise and pollution.

Door Holders

What are Door Holders (retainers)?

Fire door holders operate using a magnet, which holds the door open. In the event of a fire the magnet is released and the door closes.

As fire doors should be kept closed to prevent fire or smoke spreading throughout a building, this can cause problems in buildings where there is a lot of movement of people e.g. education establishments, hospitals, hotels.

Rather than illegally wedging open fire doors (which have automatic closers fitted) to ease access, fire door holders will safely hold open a door and release it in the event of a fire.

The trigger for the magnet releasing is a fire alarm; the fire alarm will communicate differently depending on the mechanism you use. Hardwired systems are actually wired into the building’s fire panel. In the event of a fire, the power supply is withdrawn and the magnet releases. Therefore, the door will also close in the event of power failure, meaning they are fail safe. Hardwired systems require an electrical engineer to install them. The radio systems are category A compliant, as defined by BS7273-4.

Door holders help venues to comply with the Equality Act 2010 with regard to the provision of disabled access. Geofire designs and manufactures a range of acoustic, radio controlled or hard wired fire door holders.

Hardwired systems are actually wired into the building’s fire panel. In the event of a fire, the power supply is withdrawn and the magnet releases. Therefore, the door will also close in the event of power failure, meaning they are fail safe. Hardwired systems require an electrical engineer to install them. The Geofire hardwired systems are category A compliant by BS7273-4.

Radio systems connect wirelessly to a controller via radio signals. This controller is mains powered and easily wired into the existing fire panel and therefore does not alter the building infrastructure. In the event of a fire, the controller is triggered into alarm mode by the fire panel and signals the holders to release. The Salamander radio systems are category A compliant, as defined by BS7273-4.

Acoustic systems are a cost effective plug and play type solution, which listens for the fire alarm. Geofire’s acoustic solution, the Agrippa range, is the first of its kind on the market; it listens and learns your specific fire alarm releasing the magnet when it hears a particular sound. This differs from others on the market, which release the magnet on hearing any loud noise. This significantly reduces false activations. The Agrippa range can be fitted by anyone; it involves fitting the unit and keeper plate to the wall behind the door and performing a learn procedure. The Agrippa acoustic systems are category B compliant, as defined by BS7273-4.
