Transfer benches are a perfect choice for those with very limited mobility. This is essentially a very wide bath chair that includes a permanent extension that sits on the outside of the bathtub so you can easily transfer from a wheelchair or simply sit down on the outside of the tub and maneuver yourself over the bathtub wall while sitting on the bench.
Choosing the best Tub Transfer Bench for your needs
It is important to measure your bathtub width before selecting a transfer bench to ensure that the bench will be adequate for your space. The length of the bench is important because you don't want the bench to be too short or too long for the space that you have. Almost all transfer benches are reversible, so they can be used universally for right side or left side entry tubs. Typically this is done by simply reversing the backrest and armrest of the bench.
Bath Transfer Benches include solid surface benches, benches with built in commodes, and even those with a sliding seat for easier transfers. There are several optional features, depending on the bath transfer bench chosen. Some options include suction cup tips inside of the tub, curtain tucks to tuck the shower curtain into the bench a couple of inches, and many other others.
Preventing Water Spillage with Transfer Benches
One of the most complained about things with the use of a tub transfer bench is that the shower curtain will not close completely around the bench to prevent water from getting outside of the tub while showering. One home-made solution is to use an inexpensive shower liner and cut slits so that it will fit around the the transfer bench.
