Walk in Bathtubs and No Lip Showers are Handicapped Accessible:

Standard bathtubs are built to hold about 90 gallons of water, but in order to hold so much water they are not built with physically handicapped people in mind.  They have high sides that are not easy to climb, and even if you have a step to get into the tub, they are not easy to exit when you are done.  If climbing in and out of your bathtub is difficult for you, you might want to consider installing a walk in bathtub or a no lip shower.

Walk in bathtubs offer a small lip to navigate of no more than a few inches.  The tub is designed for the user to bathe in a seated position like a standard chair instead of laying in the tub.  This is good for an individual that may struggle to stand when finished bathing.  It is comfortable and can come with therapeutic massaging jets for an even more relaxing experience.

Maybe a shower is still easier to navigate than a bath for you, or maybe you just prefer to shower.  No lip showers may solve some of your bathing struggles with a standard shower or tub.  No lip showers are wheelchair accessible, and larger than standard walk in showers.  A shower seat is available to offer the user the option to sit if they cannot stand to shower, or cannot stand for a long period of time.

There is no need to deny yourself comfort when it comes to bathing due to a physical handicap.  Consider a walk in bathtub or no lip shower and enjoy bathing again.
