Shower chairs are waterproof seats that are placed in the shower or tub to help people bathe independently. These are ideal for people with limited mobility, have trouble balancing, or who cannot stand for long periods of time. We carry several types of bathtub chairs including commode chairs, shower chairs with wheels, and more.
Standard shower chairs have a solid seat sturdy feet that keep the chair safely in place. Some bath chairs have slots cut out of the seat that act as handles to stabilize your body. Others have raised arms that are especially helpful when you need to stand up from a seated position. We carry chairs with or without padding on the seat and back.
For people who are incontinent, a shower commode chair is a great option. These shower chairs have an opening in the center of the seat and a commode pan below. This helps contain any accidents while bathing and keeps you and the shower clean. Simply empty and sanitize the pan after showering. It is also important to clean a commode chair after each use.
Express Medical Supply also offers shower commode chairs with wheels. These are ideal for people who have difficulties walking but would like to bathe themselves. You can choose from shower chairs that have small caster wheels on all sides or chairs that have large wheels in the back and caster wheels in the front. The chairs with large wheels in the back allow the user to push themselves to the shower if they are able. The shower chairs with casters will need to be pushed by someone other than the user. Some shower commode wheelchairs have a seat plug that blocks the commode opening if the person does not need access to the commode at all times.
