How The Theratub Walk-In Bathtub Helps

bathtub

At TheraTub, we use a patent-pending frameless design that allows you to have a much safer bathing experience than any other walk-in tub!

Lowest step-in available:

Walk-in tubs with step-in heights of over 4” don’t help you if you can’t step in easily. All TheraTubs come with an industry low step-in height of only 2″, even less in certain circumstances, so you barely have to lift your foot in order to get into the tub. This significantly reduces the risk of a slip or fall.

Safe and easy-to-use door design:

We’ve gotten rid of the shower glass doors, which are not only dangerous, but difficult to operate. A significant number of falls occur when a person is trying to open those doors without success or slip and fall through them. Our TheraTubs have one easy-to-open door handle attached to the door. The door itself comes with an aviation-grade rubber seal that doesn’t let any water in or out and it is mounted on a one long and very sturdy, piano style hinge.  So, you don’t have to worry about slipping on the wet floor outside your tub once you are finished with your bath or shower. The door also has a winged design that allows you to open it while seated on the built-in contour seat, reducing the risk of falls while opening the door.

Custom placed safety grab bars:

Despite the safety improvements of the TheraTub itself, some customers may need extra support while getting in or out of the tub. We offer you the option of up to three custom placed safety grab bars with our walk-in tubs. We install them at the heights that you request, so that you can hold on no matter how tall or short you are. If you have a caregiver helping you with bathing, he or she will be able to use the safety bars along with you to help you get safely in or out of the tub.

Anti-slip surface:

The floors of the TheraTub are coated with an anti-slip material to further reduce the possibility of falling. In addition, our walk-in bathtubs come with a built-in, ADA compliant, 17″ high contour seat. This makes it easy for you to get in and sit down. If you prefer to stand, the seat offers extra support as you are getting into the tub, making it less likely that you will slip and fall.

Quick draining system:

If you fall in the tub, it puts you at risk of drowning should the tub still be full of water. To reduce this risk, we designed our walk-in tubs to drain in less than two minutes. That way, if you slip while on the way out of the tub, it’s less likely that you will drown. In addition, less water in the tub reduces the risk of slipping on your way out. Our quick draining system also allows you to not get cold as water slowly drains out like other walk-in tubs.
