With little or no bathtub remodeling, you can protect household members with physical mobility problems. The tranquility, and the resulting happiness of knowing that everyone in home can equally enjoy the bathtub is priceless. Just take this into account: as you have thousands of reasons to enjoy a hot bath, older or people with physical limitations also have them.
There are a thousand and one reasons why you or a loved one may be unwilling to sit and relax in the bathtub, but do not fret. With a little or none for installing bath lifts, it will be assured that you and your relatives’ pleasurable warm baths are not over yet.
What is a Bath Lift?
Bathtub lift chair or simply bath lift is equipment used for lifting and lowering individuals into a bathtub. It is normally considered a medical device since people who usually use it are disabled, aged, and those limited by their physical conditions, such as temporary disablement. Installing it does not require too much bathtub remodeling.
People disabled by age or injury have problems moving around, which makes showering and bathing one of the most challenging tasks for them. Bath lifts make it possible for these people to get in and out of the tub, with little or no assistance at all, avoiding expensive bathtub remodeling.
How Does a Bath Lift Work?
When sluggishness gets in the way, try a total bathtub remodeling or using a bath lift chair. Sit on the bath lift and press a button to lower yourself into the tub. Once you are done with your bathing, press a second button to lift yourself back. Rechargeable batteries run bath lift chairs. The chair will not lower you unless it detects that it has enough power to lift you up again. This ensures that you will not get stuck inside the tub once you are ready to stand.
How Are Bath Lift Chairs Installed?
These chairs do not need any drilling, screwing, or making a bathtub remodeling. The most common way of installing them is mounting through suction caps or aluminum platforms. Because of this, removing is easier.
What Are the Benefits of Using Bathtub Lift Chairs?
A fall in the bathroom is very common and may cause serious injuries. Unless you make a bathtub remodeling or any other change, bathrooms present obstacles to people who are limited by their physical conditions. Owning a bathtub lift allows them to enjoy a full soak in the tub without worrying of a fall.
These chairs also allow physically challenged individuals to bathe independently, thus eliminating the need for caregivers during the bath.
Generally, bath lifts provide users the comfort and support that they need while performing their daily cleansing ritual.
Which style works best?
The answer depends on your budget and needs because a bathtub remodeling is always more expensive than an insert. Straight-back chair is the most common style of bath chair lift. Some have reclining backs, which allow you to lean back and relax in the tub while bathing. Some can swivel 180 degrees.

Its two-piece construction makes it easy to assemble and disassemble for transport. Suction cups at the bottom assure the user that it will not slip while bathing.
