Feeling clean and fresh is an even more important factor when struggling with your mobility. If a patient is likely to be sitting on a sofa or armchair for an extended period of time during the day it is vital that they feel relaxed and free from unwelcome odours.
Online PR News – 25-March-2010 – – Getting in and out of a bath can prove mentally and physically tiring for a mobility sufferer. Many adapted bathrooms now contain walk-in showers that allow a patient to wheel themselves in and wash from the comfort of their chair.
However, not all mobility sufferers are fortunate enough to have a bathroom tailored to their specific mobility requirements. Therefore, bath lifts make the ultimate difference between being able to enjoy a bath or not.
For people with restricted movement and frail dispositions, mobility specialists, Collins Care work to provide bath lifts that support and protect patients whilst transferring into the bath. The Sonaris Bath Lift combines superb functionality and outstanding performance with an impressive design. It is designed to offer the ideal bathing position in a supportive manner that can be enhanced with the addition of further optional pads.
The Dento Bath Lift works in a similar fashion with the ability to support up to 140kg in weight. The Dento Bath Lift is ergonomically designed to provide a backrest with protective neck support, including a backrest recline of up to 40 degrees – perfect to relax and have a soak.
For increased stability and comfort patients should consider a Bathing Cushion, the most stable inflatable bathing aid on the market. An ideal lightweight solution to bathing, the cushion also boasts a supportive backrest and has the ability to deflate to allow users to lie back fully and make the most of the bath.
The Bath Buddy works on a similar premise, deflating to allow patients to lie back and have a long soak or to inflate and provide ample back support to sit up, clean and vacate the bath tub – requiring no installation and just a few minutes to set up.
These impressive bathing aids provide mobility sufferers with the wonderful opportunity of helping to soothe away aches and pains from the comfort of their own bathroom.
