Walk-In Tubs & Safe Bathing
Walk-in tubs have become popular because many people, especially boomers, are determined to age in place in the comfort of their homes for as long as possible. Senior care and elder care means homes must be remodeled to accommodate changing physical needs. One of those needs is the ability to bathe comfortably and safely without help from others.
A standard bathtub is difficult and dangerous to enter and exit. If a person loses mobility, they will need an easy access bathtub. A walk-in bathtub, sometimes referred to as a safety tub, can solve that problem because it has a door and a seat that is the height of a standard chair. There is a slight step to enter the tub, but a person who uses a walker should have no problem.
Healing Properties of a Walk-in Tub
One of the best ways to relax and improve your health is hydrotherapy. Hydrotherapy or “water healing” is soaking in hot water (90 to 95 degrees) for about 20 minutes which relieves muscle tension, fatigue, stiffness and also soothes the nerves and improves blood circulation.
Imagine being able to walk into a bathtub, close the door and fill the tub with warm soothing water all while sitting in a comfortable seat. Make your experience even better by adding a whirlpool bath, or an air bath, or both.
Whirlpool Walk-in Tubs
The circulating action of a whirlpool bath improves blood flow by dilating blood vessels, which allows them to carry more oxygen and nutrients to revitalize and heal worn and damaged tissue. Whirlpools also benefit those suffering from diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure, migraines and muscle spasms.
Air Bath Walk-in Tubs
An air bath has a blower that forces air through lines that go to holes in the bottom of the tub. The air travels through the water passing by and over the body giving a massage sensation. An air bath has many tiny opening compared to the whirlpool which has fewer but larger openings. Air baths provide a more generalized sensation and they are quieter than a whirlpool. Bath salts, oils, and bubble bath can be added to give a spa experience without affecting the system.
