Most bidets can be quite helpful for to people that have a limited range of motion. Wiping becomes unnecessary as all of the cleaning functions are performed by a small adjustable nozzle. There is a lot less exertion required for use of a bidet because you do not have to strain or reach to wipe yourself or clean yourself after going to the bathroom. Instead, you simply have to use the adjustable knobs to turn on the nozzle water, washing yourself automatically. If you are disabled and do not have the capability to dry yourself with a rag or a washcloth, then you should use an attachable bidet seat that comes equipped with a drying function. This will spray warm air onto your skin, drying it completely before you leave the bidet seat.
Other benefits of a bidet may include a reduction in the number of baths or showers a handicapped individual might feel the need to take to be clean. If you have trouble cleaning yourself after going to the bathroom, then you may always feel unclean, or like there is toilet paper residue, waste or germs left behind. If this is the case for you, then choosing a bidet seat intended for handicapped individuals is a smart move. This will help you get and feel cleaner, which is one of the primary purposes for using a bidet seat in the first place.

Shop around and determine which types of bidet seats are ideal for you and ask questions to make sure you buy a bidet seat that is specifically meant to help handicapped and disabled people get clean.
