Independent Living Specialists has always been at the forefront when it comes to assisting the elderly and disabled people to live a normal and happy life. They have now introduced a new bathtub lift to their existing range of bath aids.
What is a Bath Lift?
A bath lift is a seat which could be fitted into the bath and should be in level with the top of the bath when it is lifted to an upright position. This is mainly to assure that the user taking a bath can safely sit on the bath lift. Thereafter, move the feet and legs into the bath filled with water and lower the seat into the bath to relax in the freedom of having a bath on your own.
This is a modern product from Drive Medical. It is the lightest bath lift chair available in the market manufactured with aluminum and could be assembled without any tools. It’s manufactured in two pieces for easy assembling and disassembling during transportation. The back could be folded for space saving storage when not in use. The backrest could be reclined to 50-degrees at its lowest position and the padded seat and backrest give added comfort. The watertight hand control is floatable, equipped with quick charge lithium battery included in the hand control. However, the suction cups are usable only on a smooth surface.
This is a product of AusMedic and manufactured specially for those who need to get in and out of the bathtub easily. It comes in two parts for easy assembling, disassembling and transportation. Maximum safety and comfort are guaranteed due to the high-quality material used in the manufacture with servicing not being a requirement.
Gaining self-independence and convenience are the main benefits of having a bath lift installed in a home. Since it could be easily operated with a remote, the user could be moved in and out of the bath easily by a caregiver or individual. In addition to the comfortable seat, the main feature for safety is that if the power is inadequate, the lift will not start to move the person inside it.
Investing in a bath lift is cost effective. The attachment of this device directly on to the bath eradicates the requirement of installing expensive bathroom aids. Further, due to the belt being reversible, it could be used for a regular bath by others too.
Safety is guaranteed as it securely and smoothly lowers the user in an out of the bathtub. Some models are attached with a non-slip transfer seat to ensure extra safety.
The feeling of soaking oneself in a tranquilizing bath to enjoy the full intensity of bathing cannot be fathomed. Generally, a walk in the bathtub may probably make you feel uncomfortable and cold as you have to sit and wait until the water has drained out, However, in a bath lift a user can lie back and soak in a warm bath and get out at leisure.
