Bath boards are to be fitted into baths, which allows you to sit and shower. The contoured bath boards allow the water to drain away from the seated surface and fall into the bathtub. Alternatively, you can also use a bath seat to descend further down into the bathtub. If you lack the strength to lower or lift yourself, then you can choose a Bath Lift that does it for you. When it comes to bathing itself, you are offered the option of using bathing sponges that come with a long handle for better reach, as well as tap turners to make opening a tap easier. If you have a shower, then the safest option would be to choose a shower chair that allows you to sit under the showerhead, where the water will drain away.
