Handicap Bathtubs And Handicap Bathrooms That Are Accessible
Some of the larger wheelchair accessible bathtubs have large outward swinging doors. This could present a challenge for some bathers and should be considered before purchasing. Not only does the bather need to be able to maneuver the door shut if they don’t have assistance. There must also be enough space in front of the handicap bath tub door to open it fully, without it coming up against another object in the bathroom. Depending on the model of wheelchair bathtub you would typically want between 36” to 60” of clearance space at minimum. The more room the better, especially if a lift is required to raise the bather into the tub. It’s important to verify the exact specifications before purchasing a walk in tub or handicapped transfer bathtub. These considerations can contribute to your satisfaction level with the disability tub.
