Irvine (PRWEB) February 24, 2011
America's growing elderly population is continuing to influence the way products are being designed and manufactured. Household product manufacturers are increasingly designing their products to take into account limited flexibility and strength that comes as we age. These changes don't just include easy to grip handles, they include a rethinking of everyday household products.
MonyUSA introduces a new bath brush product that will make the everyday activity of bathing a lot easier for seniors and the disabled. Now people with limited shoulder mobility and restricted flexibility will have the perfect tool to reach their feet and scrub their back. The new brush has a fully extended length of 23 inches, one of the longest available, and instead of a straight or curved handle it features an articulated handle that adjusts to 3 different angles to allow the user to find that perfect scrubbing angle.
“We knew back scrubbing might be hard for some of the elderly but we are surprised at how many people have been looking for a product like this.” said Michael Wang, Director of Marketing at MonyUSA, the sales office of Mony Industrial based in Taiwan.
Its not just the elderly that will be happy with this product. Customer demographics range from the elderly and physically disabled, all the way to the very tall. Named the Lu La Brush, this new product isn't just a brush, it's also a loofah, a sponge, a lotion applicator or even a pumice stone. All thanks to a system of replaceable heads.
It's not just the design that makes this brush convienent but its also easy to care for because of its mold resistant handle and heads. Average wooden bath brushes would mold within three months, MonyUSA decided to make thiers out of plastic, taking advantage of its mold resistance and long term durability.
