Walk-In Tubs: Independent Getaways
Even years ago, the Greeks and the Romans were aware of the many benefits baths provided. The Romans bathed to keep themselves healthy while the Greeks viewed baths as a cleansing ritual before or after a day’s work and even before battle. These benefits still stand today, with baths offering the comfort and relief essential to alleviating stress and to the soothing of muscles.
Walk-in tubs can offer these same benefits to non-ambulatory bathers. These tubs are designed with an emphasis on safety and ease of use while still creating a luxurious environment for its users. Entry into the tub is easy, with users being able to walk in without having to raise their foot more than a few inches off the floor. The built-in cushioned seat gives bathers that are unable to stand the independence to bathe themselves and it also provides a comfortable place to sit and bathe, thus taking weight off joints and muscles. Other features of walk-in tubs include safety rails both inside and out, slip resistant flooring, a hand-held shower head and adjustable air and hydro jets that can provide localized comfort.
These features of walk-in tubs make it feasible for non-ambulatory users to experience the therapy and comfort of bathing but more importantly, walk-in tubs provide independence and dignity to those who had to previously rely on others for many their needs.
Baths offer getaways from long commutes, stressful workdays and the noise of everyday life and walk-tubs make it possible for everyone to independently enjoy these moments of luxury.
