Bath Lifts

Bath Lifts are designed to transfer people to and from the bath tub with ease and comfort. If mobility and strength are limited, due to age or an illness, taking a bath can become a difficult task. It will not be as comfortable as it should be. Bath tub lifts allow the users to wash themselves independently. With bath lifts they can sit and relax while taking a nice bath. Bath lifts for the disabled, mechanically assist them to the bottom of the bathtub so that they enjoy a warm bath and raise them up again when they are done bathing.

Types of Bath Lifts

There are different types of bath lifts available, each with specialized set of features, like portable bath lifts, electric bath lifts and reclining bath lifts. These mobility bath lifts fit most styles of bathtubs and provide maximum support and stability.

Portable Bath Lifts

Portable bath lifts are a good consideration if the user wants to enjoy a hot bath at different places. These disabled bath lifts are easy to fold and carry along wherever the user needs them. They help the user safely get up and down from the tub. In order to use portable bath lifts, a person must have the ability to lift his/her legs from a seated position one at a time over the edge of the bath tub. Also he/she should remain seated upright while the lift lowers down and rises up again.

Electric Bath Lifts

Electric bath lifts provide more automation in assisting the user with independent bath tub experience. Just a push of button is required to lower the hydraulic bath lift into the tub and with another push of button it rises back again. In this way, user easily gets inside the tub and comes out when he is done bathing. Total number of lifts that can be accomplished between charges will depend on the bath lift model, user weight and age of the battery. To charge the battery, it is detached from the lift and attached to a battery charger. As a safety measure, electric bath lifts are charged away from water source. Most of the models are designed to prevent themselves from lowering unless there is enough battery for them to come up again.

Reclining Bath Lifts

Reclining bath lifts carry the users down into the water so that they can lean back and enjoy a deeper, more relaxing soak. All this can be achieved just with a single push of button. Some models have automatically reclining backrests that recline as the lift lowers down whereas others have self-controlled backrests. Self-controlled backrests provide users with the option to stay upright while washing or recline back to soak and relax.
