Walk-in bathtubs feature a watertight door that lets the user step into the tub over a low threshold. You need to close the door before starting to fill the tub with water. This type of tub comes in a wide range of models and configurations. Moreover, it’s ideal for those with mobility problems and aging individuals.
But, there are other benefits as well, including:
Every year, thousands get injured while taking a bath. Walk-in tubs come with non-slip floors to prevent these accidents. They also have safety grab rails, a safe seat and a door seal to prevent water from leaking. It’s very unlikely that someone falls while in a walk-in tub.
With a walk-in tub, the user has the freedom to enter without assistance. Physically challenged individuals don’t need to be lifted up and get embarrassed as someone bathes them.
Today’s walk-in tubs come with different special features. At Elite Bathrooms LuxStone® of Long Island, we install KOHLER® walk-in baths with a low three-inch step, the lowest available on the market. Our tubs also feature a hand shower kit with three spray settings to help make bathing even easier. Our bathtub replacement contractors know how much you value safety so our walk-in tubs have interior grab bars and exterior side frame rails.
Walk-in tubs have numerous jets that force water to go to all sides. This feature helps users feel relief from muscle pain, tension, fatigue and swelling. The strong water helps improve blood circulation and immunity.
