A tub transfer bench, (also known as a showering bench or transfer chair) is a bath safety mobility device the user sits on to get into a bathtub. The user usually sits on the bench, which straddles the side of the tub, and gradually slides from the outside to the inside of the tub. Tub transfer benches are used by people who have trouble getting over the tub wall or into the shower, either because of illness or disability. They are perfect for seniors, the elderly, disabled individuals and pregnant women who need more support in the shower or tub.
Home Health Medical's bath transfer benches are sturdy and durable, many with weight capacities of 400 pounds or more. Heavy-duty bariatric transfer benches can accommodate up to 700 lbs. Transfer benches come in a variety of sizes and models, including vinyl padded transfer benches, benches with adjustable height legs, and reversible backrest benches for left and right transfers.
Our shower transfer benches are wide and have angled legs with safety tips for extra stability. Many models have contoured seats, built-in handles for easy transport and built-in commodes. They may require minor assembly of minimal pieces or come assembled for immediate use. The three-piece blow-molded Invacare transfer bench is a secure, affordable option. The compact universal transfer bench, designed by healthcare professionals, disassembles easily for travel.
For extra safety, transfer benches contain drain holes and textured seating surfaces to reduce slipping. For convenience, some transfer benches feature built-in slots for hand-held shower and soap storage. The Invacare Rio Bath Lift provides a bathing experience like no other for those with mobility issues. The remote-controlled system lifts and transfers you in and out of the tub smoothly and safely.
For an affordable and easy-to-install whole bath safety solution, combine our premium tub transfer benches and shower chairs with bath safety accessories such as hand-held shower kits, tub wall grab bars, no-slip bath safety treads and bubble bath mats.
