Bathing aids assist users with their daily hygiene. These aids compensate, in whole or in part, for restricted or lost physical functions. The goal of using such aids is to enable their users to be independent of help and to give them more privacy.
Bathlifts are used to lower and raise a user in the bath. Their use is recommended if the physical mobility of a person’s upper and/or lower extremities is significantly reduced making it difficult to get into or out of the bath or to sit down and stand up safely. In these cases, the use of a bathlift is a great help to re-gain independence and privacy in the bathroom.
