Shower chairs for safe personal bathing
Bathing oneself by taking a shower without the constant attention of a carer can be a small glimmer of independence for someone who often needs help with everyday tasks. But ensuring safety when showering properly can be a challenge for those who may already be unsteady on their feet. A shower chair may be the simple tool which can help users maintain their dignity and bathe safely.
We have an extensive range from static chairs to more advanced models and even offer shower trolleys and stretchers but you can see details of our three most popular chairs below. Check out the attached shower chair pdf or better still visit our showroom to review the full range and try them for yourself (water and rubber duck not provided…).
