Products That Make Showering Easier
Getting in and out of the shower can be a struggle as people age, go through injuries or recover from surgery. At Hospital Overstock, we sell many products that can make showering easier and safer. These items are ideal for nursing homes and physical rehabilitation centers or for personal use. Check out the benefits of our favorite shower aids below.
Shower chairs, benches or stools are designed for patients who have difficulty sitting in a standard bathtub or standing in the shower. Seats without a back, like the Medline Shower Chair (SKU: G30403), provide easy access and maneuverability. The blow-molded seat provides comfort and strength with a weight capacity of 250 pounds (113 kg). This product also has rubber feet and seat drainage holes to reduce slipping. Its aluminum frame is light-weight, durable and corrosion-proof with legs that are height adjustable.
Want to see more options? We sell other varieties of shower chairs without backs at Hospital Overstock like the Revolution Mobility Shower Bench (SKU: MBA-221), the Medline Shower/Bath Bench (SKU: MDS89740KD) and the Carex Universal Bath Seat (SKU: B670-00).
A grab bar is another useful shower aid, allowing users to safely enter and exit the tub with more stability. Medline’s Bathtub Grab Bar (SKU: MDS86321W) adjusts to fit tubs 2.75 to 6.25 inches wide and locks in place. The handle is made out of stainless steel, but its rubber-lined pads prevent scratching the tub’s surface. This grab bar requires tool-free installation.
Detachable Shower Head
Hand-held shower heads are perfect for patients who have limited mobility when bathing. If standing or moving in the shower is difficult for you or someone you know, consider the Ergonomic Hand Held Shower W/ Diverter Valve (SKU: G98035) made by Medline. This product has many intriguing features, including a built-in water saver that uses less than 2.5 gallons per minute. The diverter valve adjusts to your existing shower head and connects to an extra long hose that extends 86 inches. Its on/off switch and massage buttons can be controlled at your fingertips.
