Walk-In Bathtubs


Walk-In Bathtubs Offer a Safe and Relaxing Experience

When considering the risk of falls in a home, it is no surprise that a slippery floor or bathtub makes the bathroom the most hazardous room of the house. To adapt your home for aging in place, the bathroom is an ideal starting point, and one solution is the walk-in bathtub.

What is a Walk-In Bathtub?

Walk-in bathtubs are specially designed tubs that provide easier and safer access for individuals with mobility challenges. With a traditional bathtub, a user must navigate a high threshold to enter, which can be unsafe or even impossible for individuals with mobility challenges. A walk-in bathtub provides a safer alternative by permitting the user to open a door with a low entry threshold to gain access to the bathtub.

The Walk-In Bathtub Experience

Entry into the walk-in bathtub is via the low threshold, sealed door. Installed grab bars provide additional assistance. Further, the anti-slip floor delivers added protection against slips and falls. The thick insulation of the tub maintains a comfortable water temperature for longer to deliver an enjoyable, relaxing bathing experience. Additionally, walk-in bathtubs offer therapeutic features, such as jet massage, air bubble therapy, aromatherapy, ozone therapy and purification, and more.

Compass Mobility offers walk-in bathtubs manufactured by Best BathⓇ.
