bedpan is made of polypropylene material. It has good chemical resistance over a wide range of bases and acids. It is also very durable and easy to clean. The bedpan lid can be helpful for keeping in odors, as well as splashes and spills when carrying it to the toilet. The built-in handle makes it easier to carry an empty bedpan. However, the main purpose of a handle on a bedpan is to make it easier for a caregiver to place, maneuver or remove it from underneath someone without limited ability to help. The bedpan can be used by both adult men and women. It is appropriate and convenient to use by anyone who is indisposed.
