Wheelchair Accessible Bathtubs With Temperature Control
Often time’s people purchase these types of bathtubs either planning for the future, or trying to address a current need. When a bather has lost fine motor skills and lacks the mental capability to live independently, having a TMV or thermal mixing valve can really come in handy. These temperature control devices make it easy to set the bathtubs temperature, eliminating the need to set it every time. It can be a nice safety feature that can help minimize the risk of a dangerous burn from occurring. Being scalded by hot water is a real concern for bathers of all ages. It can especially hold true for the elderly and disabled. While nothing is perfectly safe, it may offer additional peace of mind when bathing yourself and those you love.
How Big Does The Bathroom Need To Be To Accommodate A Transfer Bathtub?
While we have several options for wheelchair accessible transfer baths, some do require more space than others. The 2953 listed on this page is one of the most compact transfer bathtubs on the market. This elderly bathtub can fit into many common sized bathrooms, but still may be too large for others. It is important to thoroughly measure the wet area of the bathroom to ensure proper sizing. Given these tubs have outward swinging doors, it is best to have as much space as possible in front of the tub. We can help you size the right handicap tub for you.
