Posted by John Burfield on 12/12/18 4:03 PM

Page-6-Image-14Walk-in bathtubs have long been known as an accessible bathing solution for people with limited mobility. But did you know that recent studies have also highlighted the therapeutic benefits of walk-in tubs? A walk-in tub can help people with a variety of conditions, including:

  • Poor circulation
  • Poor cardiovascular health
  • Arthritis
  • High blood sugar levels
  • Stress and anxiety 

With a walk-in tub, those who can no longer lower themselves into a standard bathtub can still enjoy both the comfort and health benefits of a warm bath. Walk-in tubs come in variety of sizes to fit different bathroom layouts and can be built-in or freestanding. 

Features include.

  • Easy access and transfer designs
  • Swing-in or swing-out door
  • Right or left swing door
  • Outward swinging door designed to swing over a toilet to maximize space
  • Fast fill and fast drain technology
  • Handheld shower wand

Available options include:

  • 3-speed hydrotherapy air spa
  • Whirlpool jets
  • Secondary lock
  • Lap and shoulder belt                        
  • Chromatherapy lights
  • Grab bars
  • Shower bar and curtain
  • Seat cushion and pillow

With a starting price around $10,000 with professional installation, walk-in tubs might not fit everyone’s budget. However, if you feel that you or loved one would benefit from a walk-in tub, financing options are available to qualified buyers to help defer the cost.
