Bariatric Aluminum Rehab Shower Commode Chair

For the general public, it might be difficult to get excited about a Bath Safety meets Commode meets Shower Chair mash-up. But, for anyone who has had to care for a patient with limited mobility or the loss in ability to use their arms or legs, this Bariatric Aluminum Rehab Shower Commode Chair is something you can almost cheer for. Let's take a closer look at the features:

  • Can be positioned over a standard toilet or used as a portable self-contained commode.
  • Floor to seat height can be adjusted without tools.
  • White aluminum frame is rust resistant.
  • Padded seat back and arms.
  • Height adjustable.
  • Comes with swing-away footrests.
  • Can be used in the shower.

If you can combine this chair with a belt or perhaps a harness, you've just created an opportunity for paraplegic or quadriplegic patients to utilize this shower chair. This translates into a convenient, portable, hygenic solution to be able to bath persons with limited mobility. Since it has the commode opening & can be positioned over a standard toilet, the bucket/pail can be removed to allow the caregiver or patient to use their handheld shower sprayer to reach those hard to clean areas. With the locking mechanisms on all 4 wheels, this allows the Caregiver to maneuver the patient into the shower & lock the wheels preventing the patient from rolling around in the shower. If you happen to be taking care of someone who has limited use of their limbs, an accidental nudge causing the chair to move could provide enough of a jolt for them to fall out of the chair & get injured; reducing that risk is a HUGE plus!

Some of the other features worth mentioning are that the frame is constructed in such a way to allow it to get wet & is rust resistant, but also designed to clean-up & dry quickly so you're not tracking water all over the bathroom. The padded seat & arms add a level of comfort but also make easier for a patient to transfer from the shower chair to their bed or other chair (once again, this is where the locking wheels make a huge difference). This chair can be used a shower chair, a commode, a transport chair, & if you happen to care for patients in a facility; this is the 3 in 1 solution you've been looking for.
