Shower chairs used by the disabled or elderly are made to be used in bath tubs or shower cubicles for those that find it difficult to stand upright even for a few seconds. Wheelchair users can also take advantage of shower seating because transferring between the chairs is relatively easy. Caregivers, either family or professional, will find the shower chair to be a useful tool in their caring needs.
Shower seating gives a sense of independence and safety to the user, especially the ones that live on their own. The chair can be the difference between a disabled person bathing on their own or needing assistance from others. Most shower chairs easily fit into either baths or showers.
The chairs are mostly made of plastic and sturdy metal legs. They are easy to clean and are generally comfortable for the user. Some chairs are available in teak which is just as durable as the plastic and is not affected by the water.
Shower chair legs usually have rubber suction cups at the base of each leg. The strong adhesion keeps the chair from sliding on wet surfaces. Most models have adjustable legs, which can accommodate users of different sizes and disabilities.
Some shower chairs also have backs, similar to regular chairs while other models are more like benches and have no backs at all. The one you decide to go with will depend on the requirements of the user. Some chairs have handles for additional control and security when entering and leaving the chair.
Most shower chairs do require some basic assembly, but they are simple to put together and will come with all the nuts, bolts and screws to assemble it. Don’t forget to look at the maximum weight of the shower chair. Most have a maximum capacity of 136 kg. The dimensions should also be noted, which can easily be found on the product label. Most chairs can easily fit into the majority of bathtubs and showers.
