A walk-in tub is designed for those with limited mobility to comfortably and safely take baths (or showers) on their own. All the negatives you can think of with a standard bath are eliminated. Here are a few benefits;
- Low Step In Height – Forget about stepping over the standard 16” tub to get into it. The average step in height for a walk-in tub is only 5”. This makes it easy for people to transition in and out of the bath.
- Built-In Seating – All walk-in tubs have built in seats and are set at a comfortable height for sitting The seat heights are about the same as a standard chair – 17” to 18”.
- Safe Bathing – As you step into a walk-in tub you can be sure a grab bar is close by. Most have them built-in to aid getting into and out of the bath. Also, the standard non-slip floor and built in seat reduces falling risks while bathing.
- Therapeutic Benefits- Spa tubs have been around for many years and the benefits of a relaxing soak are well documented. Walk-in tubs are available with multiple air jets that create tiny therapeutic bubbles that ease tension. You will typically see 15-20 of these air jets in a typical walk-in tub. Water jets are also a great option that range in intensity from low to high, offering a minimal or vigorous massage. Can’t decide between air or water jets? No worries, you can have both and to top it off most walk-in tubs have in-line heaters that maintain the water temperature while you bathe.
