InventHelp Invention Facilitates Bathing by Eliminating Strain and Minimizing Effort (RBH-238)

Share Article

InventHelp, based in Pittsburgh, is attempting to submit this idea, Therabath, to interested companies for their review.

"I’ve worked in the medical field for a few years, and I’ve observed the problems elderly people have when bathing or showering: dropping the soap, having to bend over, etc.," said one of two inventors from Thomasville, N.C. "This inspired us to design a more ergonomic way to wash oneself."

The inventors created a prototype of the THERABATH, which facilitates washing during a bath or shower by eliminating the need for strain, overextension and/or bending over. As a result, it minimizes effort and avoids discomfort. The invention is ideal for the elderly, physically disabled people, hospitals, physical-rehab centers, orthopedists’ offices, nursing homes, dog/horse groomers, etc.

The original design was submitted to the Raleigh/Durham office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers. For more information, write Dept. 12-RBH-238, InventHelp, 217 Ninth Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15222, or call (412) 288-1300 ext. 1368. Learn more about InventHelp's Invention Submission Services at
