Bariatric bathroom aids reduce any discomfort or difficulty during your bathing routine and can give you independence in the place where you most want it.
What different bariatric and obesity bathroom aids do you offer?
Commodes – we offer mobile and static commodes that have attachable pans with lids. They have strong seats and frames and a water-resistant design so they can be used in the bathroom or shower. All the commodes we provide have detachable arms for increased comfort during transfers, and we also have a commode with fold in foot rests.
Toilet aids – bariatric toilet aids include enlarged toilet seats with a wider surface and an ergonomic shape. Toilet frames fit around your toilet so you have handles on both sides to help you rise from and lower onto the toilet. We also offer toilet frames with fixed seats that raise the height of the toilet seat and give you handheld support.
Stools and chairs – we have stools and chairs designed for use in the bathroom and shower. Both have height adjustable legs and offer a stable seat for you to rest on whilst showering. Chairs offer a little more support with padded arm and back rests.
Boards – bath and shower boards secure onto the top of your bath. They can be used as a seat during showers or as a safe way to get in and out of your bath. We also offer attachable grab bars for our shower boards so you have handheld support when you are using the board.
Steps – we provide a set of stackable bath steps which enables you to choose the most suitable height for your needs. The bath step is designed to reduce the distance you need to step into the bath, but it can also be used if you have difficulty reaching the toilet.
What should I consider when choosing a bariatric and obesity bathroom aid?
Size and fitting – be sure to check the size of our products, including the shower stools and boards, so they fit into your shower at home. It is also important to consider the style of your bath to ensure bath boards can fix and secure safely onto it.
Style – consider all the styles we supply before choosing. From static to mobile commodes and shower boards to shower chairs, we have a range of styles to choose from which offer varying levels of support.
