Shower Chairs & Stools

Bathroom Safety

Bathrooms are full of hard, sometimes slippery surfaces that make falling a real danger. The majority of bathroom injuries occur while exiting the shower or tub, or while using the toilet.

Shower Chairs & Stools

Shower chairs or stools allow users who cannot stand or are at risk of falling to shower in a seated position. Handles or armrests allow users to lower themselves safely onto the chair, which is particularly important when moving from a wheelchair into the shower.

Over Toilet Aids

Over toilet aids provide similar function while using the toilet by adjusting the seat height to a more suitable level for the user. Handles on the device assist users to seat themselves on the toilet.
