People often consider walk-in tubs a solution to promote safety and independence for senior family members. However, they offer much more than slip-and-fall protection — they cater to all members of the family regardless of age and ability. Find out why here.
Benefits of Walk-In Tubs
Walk-in tubs provide safety, comfort, and accessibility when bathing. Safety features like low thresholds make entering and exiting the tub much easier and less hazardous. At the same time, built-in grab bars support those who need stability when getting in or out of the bath. Adjusting the water temperature quickly ensures comfort while also helps avoid skin irritation due to hot or cold temperatures. Lastly, the tub’s walk-in accessibility makes it possible for people with a wide range of mobility issues to enjoy baths safely.
Who Can Benefit From Walk-In Tubs
Walk-in tubs can benefit many populations but are particularly important for individuals aging in place, children, pregnant women, people with mobility issues such as injuries or those with artificial limbs, people who suffer from chronic pain, and caregivers who are using their homes to care for others. Even those who want the spa-like vibe of the bathroom can benefit from the walk-in tub’s features, such as adjustable water temperature and high-pressure jets.
