If you dropped chocolate pudding on the floor, would you clean it up with a dry tissue? Of course not! The best way to clean after going to the toilet is to use water. A bidet is a toilet device that you use to clean yourself after going. Using a bidet isn’t just more hygenic. The shower is a common place for nasty falls. When you remove the shower from the equation, you raise your chances of not falling.
I definitely prefer the toilet frame design that sits on the floor, and not the one that sits on the toilet bowl under the seat. The floor variety is more stable. If you push down harder on one side than the other, the toilet prevents the frame from tilting over. The floor variety is also easier to clean because it’s not literally on the toilet bowl.

The Pulsebit-EX scans for multiple arrhythmia patterns. It stores history for two users. It allows you to measure with your palms or with double leads. Use email or download/print to share reports with your doctor. The software is very detailed and is free.
