There comes a time in everybody’s life when we simply aren’t as mobile as we used to be. Whilst in the past this would inevitably have resulted in carers being brought in or moving to a nursing home, there are now several home design alternatives to allow us to maintain our independence for as long as possible.
Two of the biggest innovations in home mobility in recent years have been the growing use of stair lifts and walk-in-baths. Climbing stairs and getting in and out of baths has always proved a notoriously difficult and dangerous task to the elderly and less mobile, however stair lifts remove the issue of climbing stairs altogether, whilst walk-in-baths allow you to regain control whilst bathing, making it a safe and even enjoyable time again.
With well-placed supportive handles, slip resistant floors, a built in seat and extremely low-entrance points, walk-in-baths allow you to get in and out of baths with unparalleled ease – providing you with the independence you crave.
Walk-in-baths, as well as from a safety aspect, can also benefit the user with hydrotherapy, with many models now having air pumps and water jets pre-built into the baths to provide the ultimate relaxation and massage experience – which can, in turn, help improve mobility by reducing muscular tension as well as other aches and pains.
Wibtrac, walk-in-baths and showers retailers, are currently one of the most popular in the industry with a large range of models available – all of which are available for wholesale prices without those pesky add-on costs found with other companies.
