Change Your Life with a New Walk In Tub
The old alternatives when it came to bathtubs included choosing between a standard tub, a garden tub, a sunken tub, an oversized tub or a claw foot tub. Each more dangerous than the last, as people got older. Today, consumers have even more options with the new design of a walk in tub. A walk in tub can be ordered in a variety of sizes and styles, but all of the various models available provide many of the same added advantages to the individuals who use them.
Who Can Use a Walk In Tub?
Walk in tubs were originally designed for folks who were mobility challenged, whether by virtue of age, illness or injury. Since falls are such a common experience for individuals of this demographic, the walk in tub was brought to market to help solve this problem…to provide users an easy and safe way to get in and out of the tub while avoiding potential injuries. Men and women who have severe mobility challenges can even benefit from a special walk in tub that is actually built for those who are wheelchair bound to simply slide in. But, buyers of walk in tubs vary widely. While some are more severely challenged, physically, many are in excellent health and are simply looking for a more luxurious bathing experience. The convenient features that a walk in tub gives you are many & provide just as much benefit to a younger, healthier person as someone who’s health challenges are greater.
What Are the advantages of a Walk In Tub?
A walk in tub provides easy access with a low entry and a wide door that swings open to allow the user to get in and out of the bath easily. A walk in tub also improves safety for care givers and offers more space than a traditional bathtub to simplify assistive bathing. With the additional room, those who use the tub can really stretch out to enjoy their bath.
