Walk-in tubs offer many benefits. They’re easy to navigate, especially for anyone with an injury or a physical limitation. These tubs make for simplified caregiving, and even offer increased safety over traditional tubs, since you don’t need to balance as you step over a high ledge.
But before you buy a walk-in tub, it’s important to do your research. Walk-in tubs aren’t all equal in their quality or construction. If you call a walk-in tub company, you’ll quickly find yourself down a slippery slope of marketers calling you over and over again. These marketers don’t always have your best interest in mind. To protect yourself, make sure you ask about the following features and benefits about each tub you consider.
When you’re caring for a patient, especially someone recovering from an injury or who is aging, falls can and do occur. You may find yourself needing to lift someone from the floor, but doing so on your own can put you at risk for injury, and isn’t a comfortable experience for the patient.
At Med Mart, we have a number of products that can safely lift someone off of the floor after a fall.
