Bariatric Shower Chairs

Shower chairs are an important part of bathroom safety as they ensure a safe and sound environment for the patient while showering or bathing. The bariatric shower chair, in structure, is the same as a standard chair with the added stability and strength that allows it to support a bariatric patient without slipping or drifting on the wet bathroom floor. These chairs have a strong seating surface and the legs are shaped in a way that they distribute the pressure and weight evenly. The legs of these heavy duty shower chairs have rubber pads on the bottom to provide extra grip. The frame of the chair is specially designed keeping in mind the needs of bariatric patients.

At Rehab store we offer a wide range of bariatric shower chairs from top selling brands such as Convaquip, MJM, Provider Healthcare, etc.
