Walk In Bathtubs For Aging In Place
This high quality 30″ x 53″ walk in bath is perfect for residential and commercial. Due to the high costs of assisted living and nursing homes, more seniors are looking to make modifications to their homes instead of long term care. Not only does it feel good to be at home, for many it may be the more cost effective route to go. Our 3053 model is spacious, yet still compact enough to fit into most bathrooms. Having a bathroom that is conducive to safety and aging in place is absolutely essential. The bathroom is considered one of the more dangerous rooms in the home and should be a primary place to make improvements for fall prevention. Installing safety grab bars by the tub, shower or toilet can help provide extra stability when needed. Several of our walk in bathtub units come standard with an internal safety grab bar as well.
Is A Hydrotherapy Walk In Bath Right For You?
You should always first check with your doctor to make sure hydrotherapy jets are okay for you. Once that is verified, then it is a matter of choosing the right hydrotherapy system for you. Air hydrotherapy is very popular among the elderly due to the fact that it’s typically considered more hygienic since no water passes through the tubes below the tub. Small check valves can help keep water from entering the lines. Whereas water hydrotherapy cycles the bathwater underneath the tub. This can make it a little more prone to bacterial growth. Regular maintenance can help minimize this, as well as accessory features like UV lights. Seniors often times prefer the warm air hydrotherapy because it is typically a little less aggressive than the whirlpool style jets. If you are someone who easily bruises, an air only hydrotherapy system may be best for you.
