Transfer Benches

A transfer bench is a bath safety seat used to move a disabled or elderly person in and out of a bath tub. Basic features of bath transfer benches include an extended width plastic seat, backrest and four aluminum or steel legs. This bench straddles the side of the tub with the two legs inside the tub typically containing plungers for increased grip of the bath tub floor. A person using a transfer bench will sit on the end outside of the tub and and slowly move him or herself across the bench to the seat inside the tub, transferring one leg over the tub wall at a time. Easy to adjust, snap buttons are used to change the height of the chair to meet the height requirements of the patient. Bath transfer benches are best paired with an anti-slip mat so while the patient moves from wheelchair to bench, they don't risk slipping or tripping on a typical bath rug.
