Walk-in tubs are safer for a variety of reasons. Many choose a walk-in tub for the ease of access and safety if provides. As individuals get older, safety becomes a real issue and a walk-in tub begins to make more sense. Independence is something everyone wants and a walk-in tub provides that for a longer period for many aging adults. Over 33% of adults over 65 fall each year. 80% of those falls occur in the bathtub or shower. So why are walk-in tubs safer? For starters they have a lower point of entry. A person doesn’t have to lift their leg up two feet to get in to a walk-in tub. Balancing on one leg can cause a person to loose their balance and fall. Additionally, our walk-in tubs have benches to sit on inside the tub. So, instead of squatting down really low to sit, a bench seat is available so it is easier to get up and back out of the tub. Our tubs are also deeper, allowing more of the body to be covered by water, enhancing the overall experience. Many of the walk-in tubs we install are also ADA compliant, have handrails and anti-slip flooring.
