Transfer Benches

A transfer bench is essentially a wide bath chair with an extension outside the bathtub. Transfer benches make it easier to shift from a wheelchair into the tub, or simply give you a place to sit outside the tub before moving to a shower seat.

Be sure to measure the width of your bathtub before choosing a transfer bench, so you will have adequate space to accommodate the bench.

Options include solid surface benches, benches with built-in commodes, and sliding benches that move you into the tub and lock in place. The staff at Equipped for Life can tell you about the different options and what might work best for you.
