Bariatric Bathing Products
Our bathing products include bathing stools and bath boards right through to wheeled shower commodes and shower trolleys. Bathing stools, perches and steps can be the answer to having a bath without the problem of sitting directly in the bath, these items used in conjunction with bath rails for leverage will usually give enough support for people to be able to manage bathing by themselves. For people who have more severe difficulties say in hospitals or care homes, wheeled shower commodes or shower trolleys are the easiest way of bathing patients who can’t help themselves for whatever reason.
