Bath Tub Lift

A bath lift is a medical device for mechanically lowering and lifting individuals from a bathtub. Most tub lifts are battery-operated, controlled with a simple button device. Other bath lifts include air-cushion models utilizing air compressors, and hydraulically-driven manual bath lifts that use the weight of the individual to lower the lift along with the water buoyancy to help raise the lift.

Who Uses Bath Tub Lifts?

While many people might think of the elderly when considering the importance of bath lifts, they are certainly not the only individuals who could reap benefits from using a bathtub lift. While the AARP endorses bath lift chairs as ideal and safer alternatives for personal bathing for senior individuals who are unable to use a transfer bench, physically disabled individuals of all ages can also greatly benefit from using a bath lift, allowing more independence and enhanced daily living. Others who would appreciate a bath tub lift are those who work in demanding physical labor fields of work which includes heavy lifting and repeated bending motions. This often contributes to a painful back, making it difficult or impossible for the individual to bend down comfortably to safely get into a bathtub for a therapeutic and relaxing hot water soak.

A bathtub lift can also come in handy for women who are pregnant, or for people who are temporarily incapacitated due to surgery, injury, rehab or illness. Therefore, no one should feel embarrassed about considering a bath tub lift because a tub lift is not just for “old people”, but can safely and comfortably assist many different people to be able to enjoy a healthy and relaxing bath.

Most bath lifts are portable and fit inside the tub, while some are wall-mounted or are separate medical devices that can both transport patients to the tub along with capabilities to lower them into the tub.

What is the Correct Way to Use a Bath Tub Lift?

The first thing to make sure of is that the individual using the lift has fair body trunk control, good sitting balance, and the ability and tolerance to be in a seated position. Users will sit on the edge of the tub (or use a transfer board) that is next to the upright bath tub lift inside the tub. Once they feel secure, they will turn their body and first lift one leg over the side and into the bathtub, and then follow with the other leg. Once both legs are inside the tub and on the bath tub chair, they can move themselves toward the middle of the bath tub lift until they feel secure and balanced. Once in the middle and well balanced, users will then use the simple button controller to move themselves to the bottom of the tub.

If the bath tub lift has a reclining option, the backrest will be able to be moved backwards once the lift is at the lowest position of the bathtub. Once users are done bathing, they will use the controller to move back into the upright position (if reclined) and press the ‘up’ button on the remote, engendering the bath lift to slowly elevate to the starting position where users can then lift their legs over the tub rim and stand up. Most battery-operated bath tub lifts have some sort of protective device that will not lower the lift down into the tub unless the battery has significant power to lift the user back up and out of the bath.

5 Ways to Choose the Correct Bath Tub Lift for You

Rehabmart offers a wide variety of bath tub lifts to choose from, so we want you to be as informed as possible when choosing a bathtub lift that is well suited for your own specific requirements.

Bath Tub Size – While most bath tub lifts will fit in the standard size tub (29 inches x 48 inches), you should make sure you measure the length, width and height of the bath tub to ensure that the lift you choose will properly fit in the bathtub. If you have a whirlpool-style tub, garden tub, or an older claw-foot style tub, you want to make sure your new bath tub lift will fit correctly in your particular bathtub.

Lift Height and Range of the Bathtub Lift – As mentioned above, some bathtubs may be non-standard in size and height. It is important to know that the tub lift will reach high enough for a safe transfer onto the seat and will go low enough in the bathwater. Some bathtub heights might require selecting a bath lift that features an increased lift range.

The Size of the Seat – There are three basic points to consider when choosing the correct seat of the bathtub lift:

Maneuverability – Having the best transfer surface for individual needs is important, dependent upon the user's particular physical limitations. A person may want a bath lift chair with flaps or wings on either side of the seat, offering more of a transfer surface to safely maneuver over the top edge of the tub wall.

Comfort – The size of the bathtub seat should allow the individual to easily and comfortably get in and out of the seat. A seat too small will be uncomfortable and could raise a safety issue. A seat too large might allow the user to insecurely slip around the extra space.

Additions – Some bathtub lifts offers additions such as lateral support pads and straps, or a rotating seat which assists users to easily get in and out of the bathtub lift seat by rotating their body.

Life of the Lift Battery – For battery-operated bath tub lifts, knowing the lift's per battery charge is absolutely necessary. Most bath lifts come with a lithium ion battery and some have rechargeable batteries. On most bath tub lifts, the battery is used until drained of power and knowing the number of times the bath seat will rise and lower before needing to be recharged is crucial. Most bath lifts will not lower into the tub with the user unless there is enough power to rise back up to the top. Knowing the number of lift times related to a person’s weight is good to know, too. A heavier person will get let less lifts per battery than a lighter person. Most bath tub lifts can lift up to 300 pounds. Changing or recharging the battery is convenient and easy.

Tub Attachment – Portable bath tub lifts come with suction, or safety cup attachments. For obvious reasons this is a big safety concern when purchasing a bath tub lift. Suction cup attachments will keep the lift chair in place while in use and the user needs to make sure that the suction cups are compatible with the interior surface of the tub. Some suction cups will stick to pebbled or textured surfaces so inspect your tub's interior surface for compatibility. Portable bathtub lifts can be removed to allow other members of the family or household to use the bathtub, as well. Some models highlight suction feet pads that have an innovative lifting mechanism to make it even easier to remove the lift.

Accessories:

To best fit the individual with the correct bathtub lift, finding out what accessories will go with or fit best with the lift will help make the bathing experience even better. Some accessories to inquire about are:

Recline Feature – Most bathtub chairs have some type of recline feature to allow the user to recline back for comfort and wash-ability.
Side Wings – These are attached to the back of the lift seat for individuals who have difficulty remaining upright without leaning for support on the side of the tub.
Lap Belt – Utilized in keeping the bather securely in place while bathing.
Head Rest – For individuals who require head support for special needs, or comfort.
Chest Strap – These are used to securely prevent the bather leaning or falling forward or sideways while bathing.
Pommel – Located on the bath seat between the bather's legs, pommels are used with individuals that experience high tone muscle issues, helping with leg muscle stability.
Transfer Disc – Designed to assist individuals that have difficulty swinging their legs up and into the bathtub while centering themselves on the seat. The transfer disc will make turning around and then sliding along onto the seat much easier.
