   •  A height-adjustable adult-sized changing bench

   •  A tracking hoist system (or mobile hoist)

   •  Enough space for the disabled person and up to two carers

   •  A centrally-placed toilet with room either side for carers

   •  A screen or curtain to allow privacy

   •  A Wide tear-off paper roll to cover the bench

   •  A large waste bin for disposable pads

   •  A non-slip floor
