Shower/Bath Transfer Chairs

Shower and bath transfer chairs help people to get in and out of a shower or bath more safely.

These mobility aids help individuals who are unable to stand or step over bathtub or shower sides to attend to personal hygiene securely, privately and more independently. From shower transfer chairs and bathtub transfer benches to fully articulating wheeled transfer chairs, Rehabmart has got your shower/bath transfer solutions covered with superior quality products from innovative manufacturers that include Showerbuddy, Access Able Designs, Drive Medical, MJM International, Sammons Preston, Independence Medical, and Columbia Medical.

The Benefits of a Shower/Bath Transfer Chair

Slips and falls in the bathroom can happen to anyone, regardless of age, physical ability and health. But when someone is physically challenged, the risks for injury go up exponentially. Various disabilities and weakness associated with aging can wreak havoc with being able to use a bathroom safely, especially when showering or bathing. People with physical disabilities, people recovering from injury or post-surgery, and people who are becoming frail as they age are all great candidates for the utilization of a shower or bath transfer chair.

A fall in the bathroom can impose serious consequences for anyone, but this is especially of concern for older adults. Studies have shown that 1/3 of adults who are 60 years of age or older experience difficulty in getting into or out of a shower or bathtub, even with grab bars and other safety equipment installed. If a senior incurs injury, this could severely limit their ability to continue to live independently, or stay in their own home. The elderly have slower healing capabilities as well, and the injury might take a very long time to heal, or might not heal completely, leading to the requirement of permanent care.

This pain, suffering and loss of independence can be avoided with the employment of bath or shower transfer chairs. These devices come in a variety of styles to accommodate every individual user and their unique needs, bathroom and lifestyle. Most importantly, they eliminate the most dangerous and difficult aspect of bathing for most individuals, which is stepping over the shower or bathtub side wall.

How to Choose the Best Shower/Bath Transfer Chair

Shower and bath transfer chairs are available in a wide assortment of designs, styles and sizes to offer a more secure and independent bathing experience for every potential user. Simply having a seat inside the bath or shower is not safe enough for many individuals, as some will require assistance stepping over the side of a tub wall or shower stall. Most shower/bath transfer chairs allow you to sit on the end that is located outside of the tub or shower and then swing your legs over the tub/shower side, centering yourself on the bench or chair once you are inside.

Most shower/bath transfer chairs highlight a rustproof frame, a comfortable, wide seat and back for enhanced support, and may offer additional features to better customize the chair to fit your specific needs. These can include height-adjustable legs, built-in handles to make positioning simpler, drain holes on the seat, adjustable seat backs or those that reverse to accommodate left or right transfers, extra-large suction cups on the leg tips to enhance safety, removable outside handles for additional balance, handheld shower holders, integrated soap trays and non-slip seats. Several models also offer no-tool assembly, while others are available in bariatric designs to safely accommodate larger working weight capacities.

Choosing the right transfer solution is dependent upon several factors. You may want to discuss these options with your healthcare provider before making a final decision. Choices differ as far as what the application will be. For example, will the transfer device only be used to transfer into and out of the shower or bath, or will the device also need to get you up and down from the bottom of the bathtub for a bath? While most designs can be used independently, some individuals may still require some assistance from a caregiver or second person. Here are some basic shower and bath transfer chair designs to help you narrow your search:

Shower/Bathtub Transfer Benches

Best applied for square-shaped bathtubs, shower and bath transfer benches are designed to let you sit down on the seat with your legs and feet outside of the tub. Then, you simply swing your legs one or two at a time over the tub or shower wall. Some considerations for this type include whether you also use a walker or wheelchair, and what size bathroom you have, as the bench’s legs outside of the tub may make it difficult for you to turn around.

Sliding-Swivel Shower/Bathtub Transfer Chairs

This special chair is totally positioned inside of the tub or shower, so this may be a better choice for small bathrooms, and/or for anyone who requires the use of a walker or wheelchair. The sliding-swivel shower or bath transfer chair faces the outside of the tub or shower, allowing you to sit down, just as you would in a regular chair, and then it helps you to slide yourself backward into the tub or shower to swivel and attend to bathing or showering. The seat height is typically not adjustable, however, which may not be the best choice for taller individuals.

Sliding-Swivel Shower/Bathtub Transfer Benches

Similar to the sliding-swivel shower/bathtub transfer chair, this transfer solution also slides you back and swivels to any position you require. But the bench version generally does have legs that extend to the outside of the bathtub wall, and it also features an adjustable seat height, making it a better swivel and slide choice for taller users than the chair. The sliding-swivel bench also tends to work better with more square-shaped tubs.

Shower/Bathtub Transfer Chair and Bench Combinations

Combining the best of both the transfer chair and bench, combinations of the two generally highlight a side piece attachment that makes it possible for you to sit comfortably with both legs outside of the tub or shower. You then slide backwards and swing each leg over into the tub. Combination transfer chairs/benches most often feature adjustable heights, and do not have legs outside of the tub that might make space too small for a walker or wheelchair.

Sliding Shower/Bathtub Transfer Chairs (with Wheels)

This may be an especially wonderful choice for those who use wheelchairs, but are helpful for others with limited mobility as well. Because many standard wheelchairs are simply too wide to fit through typically narrow bathroom doorways, the wheeled shower/bath transfer chair is specifically designed in a compressed format, allowing wheelchair users more independent access to using the bathroom without a caregiver or second person to help out. The seat on this wheeled transfer device slides along a track to move you into the tub, or it can be removed from the track and used like a wheelchair for transport into and out of the bathroom.
