Taking a bath, is one of those little things we all do that makes life that little bit more pleasant. There’s little better in life than spending a hard day at work, or a day spent gardening, and then relaxing in a nice hot bath.
So how can we make this experience even more pleasant?
These walk in bathtubs are especially a good idea for the elderly and less able, but also for everyone else. Your time spent in the bath should be all about comfort, so what’s more comfortable than walking into a bathtub rather than climbing over the side.
The fitted seat cushion and head-rest provide an extra layer of comfort. It’s hard to contemplate how comfortable this is unless you have actually tried it. But whereas the water itself gives a person a feeling of weightlessness that provides comfort, adding the cushioned seat and head-rest takes it to a new level of comfort.
Hydro air or water jets which can be added individually or as a combination of both, provide a very pleasant experience for the user that just adds to the overall experience to make your bath-time the highlight of your day.
Not only is it more comfortable, but also safer
With an entry point that is just 2 ½ inches or less off the ground, you do not have to stretch or over-extend yourself in any way to enter and exit the bath. Many people suffer accidents in the bathroom every year. There are 25,000 annual deaths in the USA from falls, a large proportion of which happen in the bathroom as people are entering and exiting the bathtub.
This problem is even more pronounced among the elderly. The frame-less design of this bathtub allows for the smallest step-in height of any of the walk in bathtubs on the market, which helps prevent accidents from happening.
