Shower Chairs/Benches

A shower chair is a bathroom safety aid that provides additional support to patients while showering or bathing. They are shaped like a standard chair with rubberized legs to prevent slipping or falling. The chair has a plastic body and is supported by aluminum or other water resistant metal. Shower benches are the same but do not include a backrest. They are also used for transferring a patient from a wheelchair to the shower area. They have a comfortable seat which is latex free and doesn’t irritate the skin. The backrest is made to shape and support the spine and lumbar. The seat usually is shaped in a way that supports the buttocks and provides grip to the patient using the chair.

We at Patient Care have a great range of shower chair and benches from top selling brands such as Teakworks4u, Duralife, Drive Medical, etc.
