Walk-in Tubs With Jets Create a Safe Havenby Kevin Smith Author
With all of the challenges and stresses that come with aging, it is so important that the elderly have a place where they can go to relax and rejuvenate. A bathtub can be such a place; however, the bathtub has to be designed to meet the needs and abilities of the elderly. Regular step-in and step-out bathtubs just won’t do the trick anymore, as they are too dangerous for an older person to navigate. Walk-in tubs with jets can be the ideal solution. They are simple to get into and get out of safely and easily, making it more likely that the tub will be used on a daily basis. Once a person is in the tub, seated on the comfortable seat, he or she can relax and enjoy the therapeutic benefits of healing hydrotherapy.

With ten built-in jets, walk-in tubs with jets can target the areas that are the sorest on a person’s body. The jets can be set to operate at different intensities and speeds to get the desired action. The jets can be directed to hit the feet or calves or leg muscles, as well as areas in the backs and shoulders. This can provide many benefits for a senior. It can help reduce stress and tension. When used in the evening it can have a positive effect on sleeping, reducing insomnia caused by muscle pain or arthritis. In addition to physical relief, relaxing in a tub with soothing water jets can promote a sense of mental well-being, too.
Air therapy can be another step forward in the effort to create a haven in the bathtub. This system works by circulating millions of tiny, oxygen-rich bubbles throughout the tub. It can help nourish the skin and deliver a gentle massage over the entire body. It is close to a spa experience, fostering a relaxing atmosphere at home.
Another way to enjoy these walk-in tubs is by using the chromotherapy feature. It employs the use of soothing lights while in the tub and can have a positive impact on mood, stress reduction and happiness. After a hard day, an elderly person can just kick back and relax and enjoy the benefits of pleasing colors while in the tub.
Walk-in tubs with jets provide the best of several worlds for a senior. They allow an elderly person to safely enjoy the many benefits of taking a bath while eliminating the dangers of slips and falls.
