Tips from Shower Chair Wholesaler

Shower Chair

Aging and mobility are closely linked. The reduced ability to stabilize and maneuver in slippery environments such as showers or the ability to bend to use the toilet can be a huge challenge - not least because mobility problems can be gradual. Recovery from debilitating accidents can also be a long and challenging process. Showering and going to the toilet can become a significant obstacle, especially when these challenges are sudden.

Shower chairs help users maintain independence in the shower, they also provide convenience for caregivers. Even if the road to recovery is long, as a professional rehabilitation medical equipment manufacturer, the shower chair from Genteel can help users to enjoy more freedom and dignity in their everyday lives.

Features to consider when selecting a shower chair

Weight capacity: standard or bariatric?

One of the considerations when it comes to shower chairs is the weight-bearing capacity. Shower chairs are available in various sizes to suit different populations; therefore, the size of the support is an essential factor to consider.

For smaller people, a standard shower chair is sufficient to provide stability. However, for bigger people, a heavy-duty shower chair is recommended. A heavy-duty shower chair is very sturdy and can hold up to 500 pounds. 

Heavy-Duty Shower Chair

Does the backrest, armrests, or handles help?

Determine if the user needs a shower chair with a backrest or with handles for lifting. Some shower chairs have armrests, while others have built-in handles to help the user lifts up and down.
