A waterproof chair is sometimes referred to as a shower wheelchair, it is designed to be used while bathing or showering. One of the most important features of a waterproof chair is the fact that they do not absorb liquids. Most waterproof or shower chairs do not have any type of cloth upholstery, because they are used in water, they cannot have any sort of material that absorbs liquid. The great advantage of having this type of chair is that the user can be transferred to the chair from another surface, and then they can enter the shower without the constant transfer problems that usually encountered with this type of transfers. This type of chair can also be used around a pool or close to a body of water. It will not be damaged because it is designed to be wet at some point. All waterproof wheelchairs are manual, a power wheelchair cannot be used in wet settings, as they are not designed to be wet.
