The steep sides of traditional bath tubs can prove problematic to many with disabilities or mobility problems and can make it difficult to get in and out of the bath easily.
Of course, a very simple solution to this is to have a walk-in shower or wet room, however these don’t quite satisfy the need to have a relaxing deep bath.
Fortunately, there’s no need to sacrifice a lovely hot bath due to the wide range of fantastically-designed walk in baths that make accessibility a breeze.
The most common types of walk-in baths
Although many extra accesories and options are available to add on, there are really two main types of walk-in bath available on the market:
- Full length bath with opening door
- Sit up bath with opening door
The best choice for you is really dependent upon your range of movement and mobility.
A sit up bath is taller than a regular bath and contains a seat so that you will be literally sat down in the water.
These are helpful if you find it very difficult to stand up from a horizontal position and will make it easy to get out once you’ve finished.
The full length bath is pretty much the same as a standard bath, except it contains a door to allow you to get in and out without lifting you legs up over the side.
If you’re able to get up from a horizontal position by just have difficultly lifting you legs up high, then this could be suitable for you.
