Evaluation

Many of the control panels for shower toilets have been taking into consideration the ease of cleaning. However, this model not only is designed with a smooth and flat panel, but also makes use of light and sense of touch to ensure user-friendliness. Because it gives clear feedback to the user when maneuvering, it is highly valued from the viewpoint of universal design with ease of use for the elderly and physically challenged. The high operability offers a good design for all people.
