We strongly encourage medical institutions to get an early start to meet the ADA deadline by purchasing these high-quality, easy to install products.
Elberton, GA (PRWEB) December 16, 2011
On March 25, 2012, all bath bench seats must comply with the new Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) design requirements. In an effort to meet and exceed this new requirement, Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, recently teamed up with Access Able, a manufacturer of products to assist the disabled, to offer the only bathtub benches currently on the market that comply with the new ADA standards.
The new ADA requirements for bath benches state that they must be securely mounted and between 17 to 19 inches in height. This will help increase the stability of the benches and will help ensure the safe transference of physically disabled people from wheelchairs to the bathtub. By installing ADA compliant bathtub benches, institutions such as hospitals and nursing homes will improve their ADA compliance ratings for facilities and could help improve their bathroom safety record for patients and caregivers.
“We at Rehabmart.com are proud to offer the only ADA compliant bathtub bench currently on the market,” said Hulet Smith, founder and CEO of Rehabmart.com. “We strongly encourage medical institutions to get an early start to meet the ADA deadline by purchasing these high-quality, easy to install products.”
Rehabmart.com offers a number of different models of Access Able bathtub benches to fit any size or style of tub. They are all constructed with a sturdy stainless steel frame with a special phenolic top that protects the seat from water damage and resists bacterial growth.
