Walk-In Tubs & Safe Bathing

walk-in bathtubs

Walk-in tubs have become popular because many people, especially boomers, are determined to age in place in the comfort of their homes for as long as possible. Aging in place means homes must be remodeled to accommodate changing physical needs. One of those needs is the ability to bathe independently, comfortably, and safely. Walk-in tubs for seniors make it possible for the elder generation to stay in their homes longer.

A standard bathtub is difficult and dangerous to enter and exit. If a person loses mobility, they will need an easy-to-access bathtub. A walk-in tub, sometimes referred to as a safety tub, can solve that problem because it has a door for easy access and a seat that is the height of a standard chair. There is a slight step to enter the tub, but even a person who uses a walker should have no problem.

 

Benefits of Walk-in Tubs

One of the best ways to relax and improve your health is hydrotherapy. Hydrotherapy or “water healing” is soaking in hot water (90 to 95 degrees) for about 20 minutes which relieves muscle tension, fatigue, stiffness and also soothes the nerves and improves blood circulation.

Imagine being able to walk into a bathtub, close the door and fill the tub with warm soothing water all while sitting in a comfortable seat. Make your experience even better by adding a whirlpool bath, or an air bath, or both.

Whirlpool Tubs

The circulating action of a whirlpool bath improves blood flow by dilating blood vessels, which allows them to carry more oxygen and nutrients to revitalize and heal worn and damaged tissue. Whirlpools also benefit those suffering from diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure, migraines and muscle spasms.

Air Baths

Available space, inside and outside dimensions of the tub, doors swing, and door openings all affect the planning, design and installation of a walk-in tub. Re-Bath offers walk-in tubs in a variety of sizes and configurations, so you won’t have to shop at different stores to find the perfect tub. Our Bathroom Consultants have the knowledge and experience to recommend and design the best walk-in tub for your bathroom.
