What is a Bath Lift?

A bath lift is a seat which could be fitted into the bath and should be in level with the top of the bath when it is lifted to an upright position. This is mainly to assure that the user taking a bath can safely sit on the bath lift. Thereafter, move the feet and legs into the bath filled with water and lower the seat into the bath to relax in the freedom of having a bath on your own.

This is a modern product from Drive Medical. It is the lightest bath lift chair available in the market manufactured with aluminum and could be assembled without any tools. It’s manufactured in two pieces for easy assembling and disassembling during transportation. The back could be folded for space saving storage when not in use. The backrest could be reclined to 50-degrees at its lowest position and the padded seat and backrest give added comfort. The watertight hand control is floatable, equipped with quick charge lithium battery included in the hand control. However, the suction cups are usable only on a smooth surface.

Comfort

The feeling of soaking oneself in a tranquilizing bath to enjoy the full intensity of bathing cannot be fathomed. Generally, a walk in the bathtub may probably make you feel uncomfortable and cold as you have to sit and wait until the water has drained out, However, in a bath lift a user can lie back and soak in a warm bath and get out at leisure.
