Nurse's Notes

Bariatric Transfer Bench by Invacare:
  • A very high weight capacity and larger seating surface makes this transfer bench ideal for larger individuals needing help transferring in and out of tub.

    Heavy Duty Transfer Bench by Invacare:
  • Many homes do not come equipped with a walk-in shower or your loved ones do not have access to it. When this situation arises, I usually advise families to get a transfer tub seat which allows for safe transfers from the outside to inside of the tub. Transferring over the tub wall is a difficult task for the caregiver and loved one to manage without having the right equipment. TIP: Recommend getting hand held shower to reduce water leakage. Also consider investing in a raised toilet seat or commode frame for the same bathroom safety reasons and to allow more independence.

    Molded Tub Transfer Bench:
  • This basic transfer bench is the answer when your loved one cannot safely raise his or her leg over the wall of tub. Place transfer bench woth two legs in the tub and two legs outside the tub.. Your loved one simply sits on the outside bench and slides across the bench to the inside of tub.
