Bathing and showering are things we don’t really think about, they are daily tasks that most people perform with ease. But when it comes to bathing a senior or someone with major mobility limitations, it can be a daunting task for the patient and the care provider.
According to the CDC, the most hazardous activities in the home are bathing, showering, and getting out of the tub. Injuries in the bathtub or shower make up about two-thirds of emergency room visits.
With the advancement of technology and better durable medical equipment on the market, there are amazing tools that families and medical professionals can use to help keep the patient and the care provider safer.
One of the best on the market is the TubBuddy Transfer System + Tilt by ShowerBuddy (SB2T).
