Shower and Bath Chairs

Bath Mobility Equipment for Disabled People

Disability affects 650 million  people worldwide, a number amounting to 10 percent of the world’s population. While  the life of disabled people can be challenging, there are several ways to make  daily living easier—with the use of modern mobility equipment you can get  around easier and do more.

When we say “disability,” this not  only concerns individuals who cannot walk or see, but it encompasses a great  number of people with paraplegia, quadriplegia, stroke, Alzheimer’s,  Parkinson’s, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, brain injuries, cerebral  palsy, and other conditions that hinder movement and social interaction.

These are individuals who can still  continue their normal lives with the use of equipment that aids mobility; they can still enjoy refreshing baths  in the shower or enjoy a swimming pool, or can still stroll in the park and  enjoy a beautiful day.

Bathing is an area of particular  concern for people with disabilities and their families.  Caretakers do not have to worry because there  are shower bath chairs that aid in  keeping showers safe. These handicap chairs resemble regular chairs, but they  are ergonomically built so that users are comfortable and well-supported while  in the shower. The seat area can be flat or curved, but both versions have drainage  holes to prevent water collection that may result to slipping. Available in  foldable and regular models, these chairs have adjustable height, fixed  armrests, plastic coated steel frames and slip-resistant rubber tips. Models  are easy to clean and store, available in different colors and finishes,  accommodate various user weights, and comply with standard state requirements.

For those looking to enjoy  swimming pools, there are portable  handicap pool lifts.  The portable  handicap pool lifts are created to let disabled people immerse in the pool  and receive its therapeutic benefits (as well as just plain old enjoyment).

This piece of equipment is  basically composed of a sling that carries the person via the support of an  anchor connected to a set of chains. The sling and anchor connect to a sturdy  pole, which is securely attached to an in-ground or above-ground base stand. Additional  features are also available, including stability vests, arm rests, seat pads,  custom covers, battery and charger and spine board attachment. Models allow  360-degree swivel for easier operation in any part of the pool, can accommodate  up to 400 lbs. of weight, and comply with ADA  requirements.

There are many other tools out  there that act as safety devices and aids for people with disabilities.  Whether you or a loved one is living with a  disability, there are things you can do to make your daily activities easier.  Do some research and check out the wide  variety of products available.
