A transfer bath may be the perfect solution for bathers with limited use of their extremities.
New York, NY (PRWEB) May 20, 2014
Safety, comfort and dignity are important concerns for patients with limited use of their extremities. Aging Safely Walk In Tubs, a leading supplier of products for people with mobility restrictions, has introduced transfer baths for nursing homes. The transfer baths have wider doors so the bather can slide onto the seat. Whirlpool and air hydrotherapy jets are standard equipment; and this specially designed tub for the handicapped can work with a lift, allowing the fork to slide under the tub. It comes with a lifetime warranty against leaking.
Transferring a bather to the transfer tub with a lift is preferable to doing it manually. The mechanical lifting improvement is worthwhile for the extra caregiver and patient safety and the ability to potentially prevent patient falls. Many elderly people feel the use of a mechanical lift is more dignified and gives them a valuable, extra sense of security and independence. Aging Safely transfer tubs for assisted living centers are compatible with the efforts of national safety and occupational organizations to improve personnel and patient safety.
The company’s experienced staff is always available to consult with facilities on ways the options for individual installations can be configured for the most efficient, effective use in their building. Residential customers can have their own contractors handle installation or arrangements can be made by the company on getting their wheelchair accessible transfer baths ready for patient use. Slide in baths may be purchased by contractors, builders, homeowners, plumbing suppliers and bath remodeling companies.
In addition, commercial organizations can qualify for wholesale price discounts when placing revolving or bulk orders. Residential homeowners can also qualify for tremendous savings, typically marked thousands of dollars lower than many leading brands.
Aging in place is an ever expanding industry. The demand for products that can help the elderly stay in their home is practically increasing by the day. The high costs of nursing homes and a sometimes institutional feel has led many retirees to finding ways they can improve their own home by implementing fall prevention products.
It is also important to note, the company also specializes in a full line of designer and stainless steel safety grab bars, bath lifts and walk in tub seat risers. These accessory items can be purchased individually or in bulk. The bath cushions can have heights that vary from 3” up to 8” tall before compression. These are an excellent option for those who would like to make their bath seat a little softer and more enjoyable.
