Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution agreement with Access Able Designs, Incorporated, to offer their ADA-Compliant Garden Tub Bench to a larger consumer marketplace. Headquartered in Vero Beach, Florida, Access Able Designs was founded by Allen Garrett in 1994 after recovering from an accident that made him a quadriplegic. Utilizing his own experiences from living in a wheelchair, Garrett developed and designed helpful and easy to use products for people with all types of disabilities.
“Being a quadriplegic myself, I know from personal experience the amount of danger and frustration other physically disabled people face on a daily basis, especially in the bathroom,” said Garrett. “Even ADA ‘upgraded’ facilities proved to be inadequate for persons in my situation.” It is because of the hardships he faced himself that Garrett decided to become proactive and create solutions for the physically disabled which include ADA-Compliant Standard Toilet Transfer Benches, Residential Toilet Transfer Benches, Shower Transfer Benches and Bathtub Transfer Benches.
The Access Able Designs Garden Tub Bench is an ADA-Compliant transfer bench specifically created for use with garden-style bathtubs. Its strong, stainless steel frame accommodates weights up to 350 pounds with a choice of finishes and colors to complement any décor. With proper mounting hardware, this bench offers the ability to be mounted safely to most bathtub walls without the need for additional wall reinforcement. Requiring a minimum of two inch tub ledges to rest on, this bench can also be folded up and out of the way when not in active use. When the tension rod is placed in the rear crossmember, the seat is held in a raised position, and when the seat is lowered into the down position, it must securely rest on the tub dam for proper support.
“We are thrilled to introduce more consumers to the ease and safety of the ADA-Compliant Garden Tub Bench from Access Able Designs,” said Hulet Smith, OTR/L, MBA and CEO of Rehabmart. “Perfect for both individual home use, or for a wide range of public places, such as hospitals, hotels, nursing homes, cruise ships and spas, this superior quality transfer bench provides secure functionality for garden tub users everywhere.

We are proud to offer this garden tub bench, and all of the ADA-Compliant equipment from Access Able Designs to our customers at Rehabmart.com.”
