Although showering is a necessary habit for humans, some people -- due to health reasons or simply age -- are not able to carry out this task as easily, which is why designer David John created the Aqua Station.

This shower system is targeted specifically for the elderly and obese, as these two groups often see the need to sacrifice their independence and privacy to maintain a good hygiene. This system consists of two chambers: one to take a shower, and the other to dry the body. Users only need to stand and wait for the washer bars or dryers to move up and down to do the job.

The good news is that bathrooms don't need to be renovated to allow room for this cabinet, as the Aqua Station is designed to be able to fit into existing UK-spec bathrooms. Additionally, it includes great features like sliding doors and water temperature controls.
