Walk In Bathtubs for Seniors
In today’s homes, a walk in bathtub is a welcome feature but especially for seniors trying to stay independent without risking injury while bathing. A walk in bathtub allows elderly people with limited mobility or physical strength to get in the walk in bathtub, take a bath, or even shower while seated and not risk injuring themselves.
The grab rails help bathers enter the walk in bathtub and once inside, the side support rails help you sit down and stand up. All of the controls for the water and the shower are easy to reach and easy to use. Since the walk in bathtubs have the rail system for additional support, even if a senior requires assistance bathing, it won’t be nearly as difficult or dangerous with a walk in bathtub.
Although walk in bathtubs were originally designed for seniors and people with limited mobility, such as people in wheelchairs, the tub can be used by anyone. All the additional features available on the walk in bathtubs are enjoyable to any bather. The massaging water jets can help sooth achy muscles and the air jets help with circulation and rehabilitate the body faster.
Anyone can take advantage of the luxury walk in bathtubs offer. Combining the water jets and the air jets can create the ultimate spa like bathing experience and leave the bather feeling better after every bath.
