While many people might think of the elderly when considering the importance of bath lifts, they are certainly not the only individuals who could reap benefits from using a bathtub lift. While the AARP endorses bath lift chairs as ideal and safer alternatives for personal bathing for senior individuals who are unable to use a transfer bench, physically disabled individuals of all ages can also greatly benefit from using a bath lift, allowing more independence and enhanced daily living. Others who would appreciate a bath tub lift are those who work in demanding physical labor fields of work which includes heavy lifting and repeated bending motions. This often contributes to a painful back, making it difficult or impossible for the individual to bend down comfortably to safely get into a bathtub for a therapeutic and relaxing hot water soak.

Hello. I’m not certain from your comment if the legs themselves are collapsing or if they are sliding up and down on the floor walls, which is causing the chair to tip forward. If it is the latter, you might consider purchasing a bath chair with heavy-duty suction cup feet, which may help. Some companies sell replacement feet that have suction cups, so you could try calling the chair’s manufacturer and see if you can replace just the bottom part of your chair’s legs.

The first thing to make sure of is that the individual using the lift has fair body trunk control, good sitting balance, and the ability and tolerance to be in a seated position. Users will sit on the edge of the tub (or use a transfer board) that is next to the upright bath tub lift inside the tub. Once they feel secure, they will turn their body and first lift one leg over the side and into the bathtub, and then follow with the other leg. Once both legs are inside the tub and on the bath tub chair, they can move themselves toward the middle of the bath tub lift until they feel secure and balanced. Once in the middle and well balanced, users will then use the simple button controller to move themselves to the bottom of the tub.

The solutions differ in regards to whether they will simply allow you to transfer into the bathtub to perform a seated shower (e.g., shower chair, shower bench) or whether they will help you to also get down and up from the bottom of the bathtub for a hot bath (e.g., bath lift chair, wall lift, ceiling lift). They further vary in whether they are designed to be used by you independently or whether they require you to have the assist of a second person.
