Austin, TX (PRWEB) September 14, 2011
Today a local Austin TX company announces that it will donate a walk in tub modification at no cost to one Austin-Area person every month. The campaign aims to help those with mobility issues to live a full life while remaining at home by giving them an alternative to a full tub to shower conversion.
The aging process will take its toll on everyone at some point in their lives, and it is common to see even the most able-bodied person diminish in their physical ability. A task as simple as bathing becomes not only difficult, but also extremely dangerous and potentially deadly without the help of either a handicap shower or walk in shower.
According to the National Council on Aging (NCOA), every 18 seconds an older adult is treated in the Emergency Room for a fall and one third of Americans 65 years and older will fall every year. Add to this the fact that every day more than 10,000 baby boomers will turn 65 each year until the year 2030, and it becomes apparent that bathroom safety is an urgent issue.
The bathtub safety modification helps lower the chance of slipping and falling in the bathtub by allowing the user to step through the side of their tub rather than raise their legs over the sidewall. The installation involves cutting and removing a 24" by 9" section of the sidewall and installing a plastic step. The process works on fiberglass, steel, and cast-iron bathtubs, and is typically completed the same day. In addition, the bather may use a shower chair if needed.
Jose Olmedo, co-founder of the company says, "The walk in tub modification turns a person's existing tub into a shower without changing the tub. It makes people's lives easier and we look forward to donating one every month. We ask that people share the news with friends and family".
