Walk In tub by Senior Life

Even though seniors tend to be less friendly and more annoying and grumpy, there’s usually nothing you can do about it so you just have to live with it. A solution that might help them be more tolerant would be to try to make their lives easier, to adapt some things in order to make them feel more comfortable.

A good example would be this very interesting tub design. It was especially adapted to make it more accessible to seniors and to make them feel more comfortable when using it. The most interesting detail is the fact that the tub has a little door that opens and closes and that allows the user to just walk in. Seniors are less flexible so it’s not easy for them to get in and out of the bathtub. There are quite a lot of accidents that can happen in the bathroom. The tub also features an incline that helps the user sit more comfortably and that prevents slipping.

Even though I find it very interesting, I don’t really understand how the door can help. It makes it easier to get in and out, but in the same time it prevents you from taking a normal bath. Because of the door, you can’t fill the tub with water, so you just have to get in and sit there until that happens. It’s not very practical.Available on Senior Life.
