Shower Buddy SB1


Easily transferred into a step-in shower or over a toilet

Weight capacity – 250kg

Product description

Easy transfer into a step-in shower – no modifications required.

ShowerBuddy’s SB1 transfer chair allows mobility-impaired users to be easily transferred into a step-in shower or over a toilet.

Mobility impairment no longer requires bathroom remodeling.

Converting a bathroom for mobility needs is typically a major undertaking. Often the entire bathroom requires full remodeling including bespoke shower, toilet or vanity units to cater for these special requirements. This comes at significant cost, time and stress. For people renting, coping with mobility needs can be harder still – bathroom alterations are simply not an option.

With ShowerBuddy, this is no longer an issue.

The ShowerBuddy SB1 was designed to offer complete shower and toilet use for individuals with mobility requirements – all without making a single change to existing bathroom fixtures. In just under an hour of setup and configuration, the ShowerBuddy SB1 allows for transfer in and out of a step in shower unit, and positioning over a standard toilet. Moving house? Just pack down the ShowerBuddy SB1 and set it up in the new home.

ShowerBuddy SB1 is the perfect accompaniment for family members or caregivers who support a person with mobility needs, with a transfer system that removes the need for heavy lifting at shower times.

With its aluminium and stainless steel construction along with a patented chair and bridge design, a ShowerBuddy SB1 provides reliable function, day in, day out.
