A seat specifically designed to sit inside the bath itself.
They’re made to sit within the bath at the same time as it is filled with water.
They effectively raise the sitting position of a person in the bath.
People with certain conditions and compromised mobility may find it difficult getting in and out of the bath, partly due to its depth.
Using a bath seat means the individual does’t have to sit as deep inside the bathtub.
Reducing this distance of travel from standing to sitting may make the task an easier one.
Typically they do not adjust in height, but some models are available in different sizes.
The height range available is from 6 inches up to 12 inches from the floor of the bath.
Only some seats are adjustable for width, so check the description if it’s a feature you need.
They are designed to fit most baths, but it’s important to check you have enough flat area on the bath’s floor for the feet to sit firmly.
Most models have suction cups on the base of each leg which fix securely to the floor of the bath.
These provide a firm footing for the seat, making it unlikely to slip while in use.
While a seat raises the interior floor of the bath, a step placed on the other side of the bath-side does a similar job to the floor of the bathroom.
Essentially, both pieces of equipment make the bath-side less of an obstacle to climb over.
There are also support rails which fit in the centre of the bath-side, protruding upwards.
Bathtub rails like this clamp on securely and usually have a curved handle.
Using this combination of bathroom mobility aids may make getting in and out of the bath a much easier routine.
It’s important to check the details of each model, but there are some which can accommodate a user-weight of up to 30 stones.
Aside from seats that sit on the floor of the bath, there are other pieces of equipment which do a similar job.
For example, seats are available which rest on the top of the bath on either side and have a seat which is suspended above the water.
Some of these models have a swivelling seat, making it easier to turn into the desired position.
Bath boards do a similar job, but are simpler in that they don’t have a moulded seat.
Instead, they provide a bridge across the bath on which to sit.
The drawback with both of these options is that they position the user some distance above the bath water.
