Many people find it hard to adjust to the changing bathing situations after they become elderly, disabled, or get injuries that cannot allow them to take a bath on their own without being physically assisted. The only option they have left is purchasing a bath tub lift or a disabled bath lift. These will definitely help them get back to their old bathing ways. While buying these lifts may be slightly expensive for some people, they certainly remain the best option especially to those people who are required to sit down while taking a bath. The currently available options are less expensive and extremely reliable to use. They allow one to immerse his or her body into a bath tub and then get out safely and easily after the bath. There are a number of considerations that must be looked into when purchasing a disabled bath lift. With the availability of these lifts everywhere including online stores, settling on one type can be quite difficult. The best way out is to choose the best bath lifts depending on the individual needs and requirements. These bath models differ in color, size, style and appearance although they do not have many whistles and bells like other devices such as the scooters and lift chairs. Before purchasing a disabled bath lift it is important to know the inside measurements (depth, length and width) of the bathtub the lift will be used in most often. Just like buying a pair of shoes for the feet, it is important to select the bath lift that will best fit the tub. Depending on the size of the tub and the size of the users of the bath lift, certain lifts will fit much better than others. Most automated bath lifts have side flaps that are designed to assist the user with transitioning into the bath lift. These flaps should overlap the edge of the bathtub, so it is very important that the top height of the bath lift be equal to or greater than the inside depth of the tub. If the lift does not go as high as the inside depth it could be a challenge for the user to get into the bath lift. Accessories may be purchased to assist with this transition; however the accessories require the bath lift be level with the bathtub. It is also nice to know the inside length of the tub to understand if the user will be able to fully extend their legs. Most tubs with an inside length of 5ft or more will be able to accommodate the average size person. If the tub is less than 5 ft long, a bath lift can still be used, however the user might not be able to fully recline. In most cases, even if the user can not fully extend their legs, the safety that the bath lift offers in terms of getting the user up, far out weighs the inconvenience of bathing with slightly bent legs. Disabled bath aids are available everywhere you go shopping for medical supply online. This makes it a win-win situation for those after purchasing either a bath tub lift or bath hoist. It is a good idea to purchase a lift from a company that sells many different lifts and can explain the differences and advantages of each lift. Although the products in this market do not change daily, new bathing assistance devices are common, and a knowledgeable dealer can help find the best solution for each situation. The good thing with these bath options is that they are easy to install and set up; it takes less than ten minutes to do so. Ensure that you have the right measurements of width and height to ensure that the bath will fit in properly before you go purchasing. Also check the stature of the user to make sure that the model you choose has a matching size for the sake of easier usage.
