There are many types and brands of bath lifts for the elderly and disabled available and, at first, searching for one may seem daunting. Carefully thinking about what it is that you require from your product can help make searching for a device much more simple. Bellavita, Sonaris & Deltis are some of the brands we stock, but what should you be looking for?
Bath aids like lifts for seniors are ideal for people who require some assistance lowering themselves into a bath but do not yet require or want a disabled bath. Effectively, most lifts are a seat that is placed in the bath and is raised so it is level with the top of your bath. You can then sit in the seat and allow it to lower you into the bath with the water already run.
Whether you are looking for electric bath lifts for the disabled, bathtub chairs, seats or general bath lifts, the most important thing to consider is the needs of the user. There are two main types of lifts; motorised and air pressure. Motorised lifts tend to be more stable for those who have balance issues while air pressure seats enable a deeper plunge as they reach the very bottom of the bath. Whichever type you choose, the seat can be removed when not in use so that no inconvenience is caused to other users.
Depending on your needs, it may be worth considering accessories such as safety belts and additional head rests to increase comfort. Also, many of the bigger brands such as Bellavita, Sonaris, and Deltis offer transport bags for the apparatus which allow you to take them with you on holiday or when visiting.
