One option is a walk-in tub. They are very popular with seniors and those with mobility issues because they can provide you with many benefits in the bathroom.
Walk-In Bathtubs Are Safer Than Traditional Tubs
One of the biggest benefits of walk-in bathtubs is the fact that they can make your bathroom safer. Stepping over a deep basin and sitting in a traditional tub increases your chances of experiencing an accident as your mobility decreases. A walk-in tub doesn’t have a high threshold. Instead, you simply open the swinging door, step inside as if you were stepping into a vehicle, and shut the door behind you.
Once inside the tub, you’re able to sit on a convenient seat, which makes it much easier to get in and out of the tub. Additional features, like grab bars and anti-slip flooring, can make your tub even safer.
Deep Relaxation With Hydrotherapy
Water has been proven to be an effective way to ease tired muscles, as well as joint pain. You can relax in a traditional tub, but you haven’t experienced true relaxation until you’ve soaked in a walk-in tub.
Topeka walk-in tub installers offer a range of features that include therapeutic air, whirlpool jets, and water warming. These features can ease the symptoms associated with poor circulation, arthritis, fibromyalgia, and more. You’ll find yourself soaking in your tub to relax, not just to get clean.
Walk-In Bathtubs Are Extremely Convenient
Sure, soaking in your tub is relaxing, but what if you're in a hurry? A walk-in tub is a shower too!
With an extendable shower head, you can turn your tub into a sit-down shower. Most tubs have enough space that you can take a stand-up shower too. This is not only convenient for those with mobility issues, it means that other family members without mobility issues will be able to use the tub as well.
