Worried about falling, slipping, or not being quite strong enough to get in or out of the bath or shower? It’s a common concern for the elderly, disabled, and those with special needs. That’s where a tub transfer bench comes to the rescue.
Bath transfer benches are a lot like bath seats, but are bigger and offer different stability and unique features. A bath bench has two legs outside the tub and two legs inside. They usually feature a durable anodized aluminum frame, height adjustable legs and a comfy back rest for more stability.
Just sit down on the outside of the tub, slowly swing your legs over the tub wall and lower into the bath by gripping the armrest and sliding across the bench. After that, you can safely and securely sit on the transfer bench while you bathe or shower.
There are a few options in bathtub transfer bench designs, so have a look at some essentials before making your choice.
