More Than Just a Washlet

While a TOTO Washlet may look like an ordinary toilet seat – and it does fit onto virtually any standard toilet – its inner workings and innovative features offer incredible comforts and cleaner living for everyone. And for many, the Washlet also confers a sense of independence and an easier time in the bathroom.

The list of Washlet features is long, from a pampering heated seat to a built-in bidet to convenient remote control. In technical terms, the Washlet can be considered a technology-assisted toilet, or “smart” toilet. And it’s not difficult to see how many of its features benefit those who are elderly or physically impaired in some way. For example, auto-flush is activated by sensors, or by the simple touch of a button, as is the automatic open/close lid. The toilet is ready when you are, and tidies up when you’re done – it’s an easier, automated experience from beginning to end.

Most notably, the integrated wand that extends to release a warm, soothing stream of aerated water is the ultimate in hands-free, hygienic cleansing. That’s a wonderful benefit for anyone, of course. But imagine how helpful it is for a stroke patient who can no longer toilet themselves, or for someone in physical therapy who hasn’t yet returned to their previous level of functioning.

The Washlet was designed with everyone in mind. And by allowing people with special needs or abilities to maintain their dignity and privacy, it is emblematic of the kind of respect that all TOTO products seek to offer.
