Who Needs a Walk in Tub
A walk-in tub has a small door that opens for the user to enter and a seat for them to sit on during use. Safety bars are installed for added safety. We carry numerous soaker walk-in tubs from a standard tub to soaker tub with jets to help relieve pain and improve circulation.
Senior safety walk-in tubs are smaller and taller than standard tubs. They are built with slip resistant floors, a hand-held shower head, a built in seat, and grab bars. Installing a senior safety walk-in tub helps a senior feel safe while maintaining their independence.
Wheelchair accessible bathtubs are designed the same as walk-in and senior safety tubs but the door is designed differently. This make it easier for a wheelchair bound person to transfer or be transferred into the tub without a lift. The wheelchair is rolled up next to the tub and the user can easily slide from the chair to the tub.
Walk in tubs can be used by anyone. They function as an ordinary tub so the entire family can use it. The major difference is users are seated versus being able to lay in a tub as done with standard tubs. Depending on the size, most walk-in tubs will fit in the area of an existing shower or shower-tub combo.
Walk in Tub Safety
Safety is the key benefit of installing a walk-in tub. These are specifically designed for those who have mobility issues where getting in and out of a standard tub is too risky. So many injuries to the elder and handicapped happen in the bathroom. It is dangerous with unsure footing and wet floors therefore extra caution is taken in making walk-in tubs to provide slip resistant flooring. Additional safety precautions are also used in walk –in tubs such as grip bars and more importantly the door that doesn’t require stepping over a threshold.
If you or someone you loves has trouble getting in and out of the bathtub or shower, installing a walk-in tub will help alleviate the worry of accidental falls and make for an enjoyable bathing experience.
