Help for Special Needs People

Adults and children of all ages with mild, moderate, or severe disabilities require adaptive equipment. That includes a special needs bath chair that provides ease of use, comfort, and maximum support that will aid both the person and the caregiver. It can make bathing an interactive and pleasurable experience instead of a stressful one.

The chairs take into consideration factors such as positioning, convenience, hygiene, and comfort. Some chairs have angle adjustability for the right positioning or stability in a seated upright position. These products are lightweight, easy to handle, and are easy to maintain.

Perhaps the bath chair can be used in a dedicated bathroom and not have to come out of the tub. However, if other family members need to use the same bathroom, the chair has to be easy to take out and put away.

An In-Home Assessment scheduled at your convenience will create a diagnosis for the proper equipment and measure the person for a custom fit that will provide a safe and sound bathing experience without the danger of injuries or accidents.

There is a wide range of positioning, mobility, and comfort needs based on disability, age, and lifestyle. The right custom solution can be created for each unique individual. There is a vast difference between what special needs equipment configuration is needed for children and adults. A disabled child does not belong in a shrunken version of the product for an adult. The proper needs involve matching the functional and clinical needs of the individual and the caregivers with the products that are appropriate and useful.
