Walk-in tubs for elderly are normally bigger than the normal tubs, and some of the advantages include:
They avoid slips and falls
Cases of falls and slips among the elderly are very high due to reduced stability but installed tubs help reduce these cases. Another advantage of having walk-in tubs for the elderly at home is that they are able to maintain hygiene since bathing becomes more challenging, but walk-in tubs are easier to sue especially when cleaning sensitive skin of wounds.
They are also the best especially if ones’ movement is limited because they can simply walk in with a wheelchair, walkers, or even scooters. Walk-in tubs are also used to exercise, and especially for the elderly who have arthritis and have been advised to do water exercises.
The hot water in the tubs also works by helping the tight body muscles relax thus releasing endorphins that help relieve pain naturally.
