Shower Chairs


 

Nurses Notes

Carex Compact Adjustable Round Shower Stool:
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 shower seat which allows for safe and comfortable bathing in tubs or shower stalls. These seats are made not to slip and allow your loved ones to take their time bathing. Also consider investing in a raised toilet seat or commode frame for the same bathroom safety reasons and to allow more independence. TIP: Recommend getting hand held shower to reduce water leakage and add to comfort. If your budget permits be sure to buy the seat with the back as it is alot more comfortable according to many patients.

Carex Portable Bathtub and Shower Bench:

Portable tub bench is your solution when space is limited.  This product offers an answer to seating in the tub in place of a free-standing shower/tub seat or transfer bench. It is less intrusive and takes up minimal space. It fits most tubs and is safe and comfortable for your loved ones who are weak or frail. Enforce safety for Mom or Dad because falling in the tub is not an option. A small investment to protect your elderly parents in the bathroom and allow more independence.

Invacare Folding Shower Chair With Back:

This portable folding shower chair fits the bill for those with limited space at home or who are on the go. Most shower chairs are bulky and not only take up space in the shower but when not in use as well. The back makes ts more comfy and gives additional support.  It works just as well as the non-folding models so why not enjoy the convenience of one that you can stow away easier.  Also consider investing in a raised toilet seat or commode frame for the same bathroom safety reasons and at the same time allow more independence. Remember the bathroom is where most of the accidents occur so be proactive. 

Invacare Vinyl Padded Shower Chair:
If you have low endurance, or difficulty standing in the shower or tub, a shower chair will provide you with a safe way of bathing and this padded model adds extra comfort.

PMI Bariatric Bath Chair With Back:

Very functional as well as economical heavy duty bath chair.
