The Benefits of Walk In Baths

by Kevin Smith Author

Walk in baths differ greatly from traditional tubs. Instead of having to lift your leg and step over a high tub wall, walk-in tubs have a door on each side to allow for easy entry. They also have features such as seats and spa amenities like jets.

 

If you or someone you love has mobility issues that makes it hard to get in and out of tubs, consider the following benefits of walk-in tubs.

Safety

These tubs are designed for people who have balance issues or other problems that make stepping over a regular tub dangerous. Installing a walk-in tub prevents slip and fall accidents in the bathroom. You can feel comfortable and at ease using these tubs.

Comfort

Regular bathtubs can be uncomfortable and hard for people with mobility issues to lower themselves into the tub and raise themselves up and out of the tub. Walk-in tubs have ergonomic seating in the bathtub.

 

Although the seating is another safety feature, it’s also great for people who want to keep pressure off their legs and feet. The seat keeps you in a stable position and allows you to have a relaxing and comfortable bathing experience.

Spa Features

Walk-in tubs feature jets and other spa features like handheld shower heads to make it easier to take a bath and wash your hair. The spa features are also wonderful for people who have sore joints from arthritis or other conditions. To get the most from the jetted features, make sure to choose a tub style that lets you customize jet pressure. Hydrotherapy is a wonderful feature in walk-in tubs and can provide pain relief for people who neuropathy, MS, and other ailments that leave the body sore and tired.

Fast Fill and Drain

Another benefit of walk-in tubs is the fast fill and drain feature. Users spend less time waiting for the tub to fill and more time enjoying its soothing benefits.

Stay in Your Home Longer

Walk-in tubs used by older adults allow them to stay in their homes and age in place. Often, people feel forced to leave their homes and enter assisted living facilities because they need help to get in and out of the tub. Walk-in tubs give older adults their independence back and let them spend their later years in the home they love.

 

Walk-in baths allow you to create a safe, comfortable, and inviting bathing experience for everyone in the home.
