With large walk in tubs the sides go up by the shoulders, so it’s uncomfortable to have your arms cramped into your lap.

Bariatric Walk in Tubs Aren’t Right For Everyone
One thing about walk in tubs is you need to step up into the tub. Not everyone can use their legs or can step up into the bathtub. In some instances, we recommend doing a transfer bathtub. Very similar to a walk in tub, except the door is cut away so the bather can simply sit down and slide in. They can even work well with lifts and are perfect caretaker bathtubs. These also come with several options that work for bathers who need extra space. Learn about HISA here. Check out some of our ADA compliant handicap showers.
