Not sure if this is the right place to talk about such things with virtual strangers, yet somehow I suspect other might have an interest in this.
I am a very independent person with a work accident that left me with lots of back pain and decreased mobility issues.
Anyway, I just bought a gadget called a "Washlet" made by Toto (Japanese company with distributors in most countries).
It is a technological marvel that replaces a typical toilet seat and provides a type of bidet function. It makes it easy to maintain the highest standards of personal hygiene.
It is especially useful for me, as I have a great difficulty leaning and twisting to wipe myself on the toilet, because of my lumbar injuries.
The Washlet bolts to the toliet like a seat and just plugs into a grounded GFI outlet and hooks up to the existing cold water supply behind the toilet.
It has a built in, on-demand water heater, seat warmer, fan/deodorizer, variable pressure water output, and even a warm-air dryer to finish up.
The fountain head is on a little robotic arm and cleans itself before and after each use.
I've always been interested in these since I visited Japan a decade ago, but never could justify the price.
A couple weeks ago I saw one "brand new in box -- unused wedding gift" and was lucky enough to win it at just a mere fraction of its regular price. Probably because most people never heard of these things
Oh, did I mention it has a freaking remote control?
This is the best thing I bought all year. If you're in the same boat as me, definitely check them out.
A search for "Toto Washlet" should start you off.
