A genius inventor has come up with a technological solution for those times when you wake up and know you need a shower, but you haven’t quite got the energy to pick up the soap.
To be fair, inventor Matti Paaso devised his revolutionary HumanWash for the elderly and infirm, but you just know it’s going to be taken up with bleary enthusiasm by the morbidly hung-over.
Matti has been developing the £4,100 motorised shower add-on for quite a while.
The 70-year-old from Helsinki, Finland, said: “It took me more than three years and four different prototypes to get this right.
“I couldn’t find anything like this when I was doing my research on YouTube.
“It is fitted with two motors which control the rotating brush and the vertical movement of the brush.
“It also has an emergency stop button and automatically stops after 15 minutes.
“I designed it for people who have mobility issues, or are injured or are older and struggle to shower themselves.

Maati explained: “It could be a very useful tool in a hospital or for care providers, it only uses the same amount of space as a normal shower.
“The user can wash their entire body in two or three minutes but, as the brushes are designed for a gentle massage, the normal washing time is about 10 minutes.
“One of the prototypes was trialled in a hospital for one month and they loved it.”
To operate the Humanwash, users must press the foot pedals or buttons installed on the side of the device.
