Showering with a shower bench or tub transfer bench can make showering so much more relaxing and safe. The whole point of using a shower bench is safety. If you have balance or mobility problems, then sitting down to shower is much safer than standing in a wet tub. If you have vision or pain issues, then being seated is much safer than being on your feet in a shower or tub.
The shower bench or tub transfer bench can accommodate a user who has difficulty lifting legs to get in and out of the tub in a stable, balanced position. As a caregiver or a bather, your experience in the shower can be much safer, and therefore, much more enjoyable.
Advantages of a Tub Transfer Bench
If you don’t usually use a shower bench when showering, then consider these advantages and you may want to get one. Consider the size of the shower stall and the height of the tub side when choosing a shower bench. There are a variety of sizes and features available. We recommend the kind that has a contoured plastic seat with drain holes in the seat, because they are the easiest to clean. A backrest is good, but not necessary for everyone. Consider the balance and stability of the user when choosing one with a backrest or without the backrest. A padded seat is also comfortable, but not required.
Make Sure it’s Stable
A tub transfer bench which has adjustable non-skid legs so you can get a stable and height according to lay out of your bathroom. Once adjusted, make sure all snap adjusters are firm and secure. The legs of the bench are made of lightweight Aluminium so the bench is lightweight and will not rust. Handles on the bench are helpful in handling the bench itself and in grabbing it when sitting down or rising.
