A bath transfer bench is a bath aid for users with restricted mobility, particularly users who do not have enough strength in their leg muscles to come in and out of the bath whilst standing.
A bath transfer bench is placed in a manner that two legs of the bench are on the outside of the bath while the other two are placed inside.
The disabled user can sit on the transfer bench on the outside, then they can lift their legs either with or without support whilst in a sitting position and slide to enter the bath using the integrated handles. The same manoeuvre can be repeated to get out of the bath.
evacare currently offers a height-adjustable bath transfer bench that is built using an aluminium frame and comes complete with a handle for easy manoeuvrability and suction cups for added safety. The user can also change the position of the backrest based on their individual needs.
