Walk-in tub solutions can be installed in place of standard bathtubs, or retro-fitted into existing tubs. They utilize hinged doors that can be opened to step into the tub with little to no ledge to step over, and closed to create a water-tight seal for bathing. Some walk-in tub models also include raised seats to prevent users from having to lower themselves down into the tub, and may have jets for additional therapeutic benefits.
Barrier-free shower modifications modify a bathroom to remove the tub, leaving the shower intact. They may have low ledges (one to two inches high) or smooth surfaces, accessible by wheelchairs and shower transfer chairs.
Whether you need an easily accessible bathtub for therapeutic benefits or a wheelchair-accessible shower, 101 Mobility San Jose’s experts can help you find the best solution to fit your needs and enhance bathroom safety.
