Hi my name is ***** ***** I have been in the plumbing field for 20 years. I will be glad to help you today. I looked at the link you posted. This item is a very common type. You mentioned that you liked that it is half way down the wall but actually the cradle is adjustable and can slide up or down on the bar. You could get the slide bar separate without the hose and wand then get a ADA hand held from Lowes. It has any option of spray that you would want and the controls are designed for the elderly to use with ease. It is also designed to sit in the cradle in most shower chairs and the hose is 6 or 7 feet long. I will find it on their site but it may be a few minutes.
The one that I shared would connect right to the shower neck where the shower head would connect and you could also extend it with an extension hose, but I doubt it would be very useful for a bidet function. The one you shared the link to should have some sort of adapter that would connect to a shower head but it is hard to tell what type of connection it would have. If I had it in front of me I think I would still have to take the hose to the store and find a connection that would work for the shower head if it did not come with a connector already. As far as the sprayer I suggested, the hose is extra long so that it would fit in the cradle of most ADA shower chairs and is very useful for the elderly since the control and handle are very ergonomic. The wand you shared that would connect to the sink would not be very useful for the elderly if you have a round toilet. There is not much reaching room unless you have an elongated toilet. I would suggest possibly a bidet toilet seat. click here That way there is no risk of anyone turning the sink on and the sprayer going off, the bidet seat would have a remote so there is not any way to have a mishap with the sprayer and no one falls over trying to use a sprayer and the shower allows you to use the hand held for washing with convenient placement of the sprayer on the cradle of a shower chair or bench. I know this was a little bit rambling but maybe this would be a better thing to discuss over the phone?
I see you still have not positively rated my service. Although the only way that I get paid is when my service is positively rated, it also tells me that you have not received the information that you were seeking to find a solution to your issue. Will you let me know what affect the information I provided had on the issue at hand and how else I may be able to help?
No problem at all. I just want you to know that I will continue to assist until the issue is resolved. Let me know when I can help further.
The shower wand I mentioned before does not have a tiny head. Also, when you put a shower wand on pause to move it between the shower, toilet and sink it will still trickle. It is designed to do this so that it does not get air locked. There are other issues with using the shower for the toilet too. Have you considered a bidet toilet seat, pull out sprayer lavatory faucet then a ADA shower wand for the shower? click here and here
