DBO Commode

Award: Graphite Pencil

Graphite Pencil / Product Design / Work & Industry / 2010

The DBO Commode represents a shift in commode design, reducing infection transfer. It has two key parts: the ‘shell’ forming the patient interface, and a single stainless wheelable frame. A top-loading bedpan contains the spread of aerosol and therefore infection transfer. The separation means that the shell can simply be lifted off, and has no fixings or features to inhibit what is now a wipe clean process. Damaged components are easily replaced without condemning the whole product. The number of parts has been minimised, making cleaning quicker and easier. The frame and shell nest and stack for easy storage.
