The term ‘ambulant’ is used to describe a patient who is able to move around and is not confined to a bed or wheelchair.
Whilst this does reduce their need for accessibility equipment within a disabled WC, there is still a need for certain supports and other apparatus within the toilet. An ambulant toilet is designed to meet this need.
It’s almost a halfway house between a regular toilet and a disabled WC. For example, there’s a reduced minimum clear circulation space of 900mm x 900mm and the number of grab rails required is reduced to three.
All the other common factors that Doc M and BS8300 recommend you address still apply, such as light reflectance value and the use of thermostatic mixing valves.
Our ambulant Doc M pack is designed to ensure that ambulant users can use a toilet independently and with ease.
The ambulant Doc M pack is the smallest pack we have on offer and is often used in cubicle toilets found in public amenities or commercial developments.
The pack contains two 600mm grab rails, one 450mm grab rail, one ring only toilet seat with stainless steel hinges and the choice of either a close coupled WC pan, back-to-wall WC pan or a wall-hung WC pan with a WRAS Approved cistern and the necessary fixings.
We offer a diverse choice in colour and even options for material and grab rail finish, giving you a wide variety of style options.
The ambulant pack is also available throughout all three of our sub brands — NymaPRO, NymaCARE and NymaSTYLE — meaning there is no compromise on design when it comes to meeting the requirements set out in Doc M of the Building Regulations.
