Bathtub Transfer Bench

KSh14,000.00

The purpose of a transfer bench is to provide more stability, quite simply, to make it easier to access and exit the bathtub or shower. A transfer bench is placed over the outer edge of the tub so that instead of having to climb over the ledge, the individual can simply slide across the transfer bench, and, by doing so, easily bypasses the ledge and gets over into the tub. Some transfer benches are also able to be used as shower chairs (the person would sit on the side that’s in the tub). Tub transfer benches provide users with feelings of independence and security since they are easy to slide across. They minimize the risks of those unfortunate trips or falls.

Product Description

A transfer bench is placed over the outer edge of the tub so that instead of having to climb over the ledge, the individual can simply slide across the transfer bench, and, by doing so, easily bypasses the ledge and gets over into the tub.

The Point is Safety

A 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.

NB: Make Sure it’s Stable

Bathtub Transfer Bench has adjustable non-skid legs so you can get a stable and height according to the layout of your bathroom.  Once adjusted, make sure all snap adjusters are firm and secure. The legs of the bench are made of lightweight aluminum 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. Having your bench in a stable position you are ready to enter the tub.

Steps for Safe Use

  1. Stand with the bench touching the back of your legs, stable yourself by use of handholds on the bench or grab bars on the wall, and sit in a slow controlled manner. Don’t “flop” down on the seat.
  2. Scoot back as far as you can with both legs still outside the tub.
  3. Lift one leg at a time over the edge of the tub. Your assistant can help you.
  4. Position yourself so that you’re seated, comfortably, all the way in the tub and you’re ready for your shower.
  5. Finished with your shower, dry your feet to prevent slipping, and simply repeat the process in reverse. For more information contact us here
