When it comes to mobility issues, most falls occur in the slipperiest place in your home, the bathroom. A shower chair can make all the difference in the world, and can turn shower time back into something enjoyable rather than a time to be feared.
But knowing which shower chair to get can sometimes be overwhelming, and even when you do have one it’s not always the right match for you. So what should you look for when considering an upgrade? Let’s look at some reasons that make ShowerBuddy the perfect choice.
Safety in transfer
The risk of falls is highest during shower or bath transfers, especially in small and confined bathroom spaces. When combined with a wet surface, accidents can occur quickly. However, by upgrading to a high-quality shower chair like ShowerBuddy, you can mitigate this risk. ShowerBuddy is designed to assist with transfers, reducing the reliance on caregivers alone.
Safety in the bath or shower
Are you confident in your safety once you’re in the bath or shower? A reliable chair not only provides security for the user while seated but also offers reassuring stability against the shower or bath walls and floor. If your current shower chair fails to provide this level of support, it may be worth considering a ShowerBuddy.
How robust is the frame of your shower chair? The frame plays a vital role in maintaining the chair’s stability and safety during daily use. It ensures that all components, such as the seat and backrest, remain securely attached at all times. Moreover, it needs to withstand the constant exposure to water without succumbing to rust. Unfortunately, not all shower chairs have frames that are designed to endure. However, by upgrading to a chair with a frame constructed from top-quality materials and built to meet precise standards, individuals and their families can enjoy greater peace of mind.
Many low-quality shower chairs have not considered comfort at all. But considering you’re taking a shower or bath every single day, sometimes more than once a day, this should be one of the top priorities after safety. If your chair isn’t offering you any comfort at all, consider looking for one that offers a soft and supportive cushion so that shower time can go back to being enjoyable.
A good fit
How suitable is your shower chair for your bathroom? Regrettably, the majority of bathrooms are not designed to accommodate additional accessories and equipment. Finding a chair that aligns with the dimensions of your bathroom and allows easy access for caregivers is crucial for restoring the enjoyment of your bathroom experience. Products like Showerbuddy provide flexibility and customisation to ensure an optimal fit.
Upgrade to ShowerBuddy for a better, safer, and more comfortable bathing experience. With its customisable design, high adjustability, and durable construction, it is a reliable and safe solution that promotes independence and enjoyment in the bathroom.
