If you or a household member is having difficulty getting into and out of the tub, it may be time for a walk-in tub. For options and estimates, you need to consult with a company that offers remodeling for bathrooms, such as Rebath. Here are some of the benefits of a walk-in tub.
First and foremost is the safety of a walk-in tub. These types of tubs will lessen the chance of falling and eliminate the struggle of climbing over the edge of the tub. These tubs come with interior features that prevent slipping under the water, like handrails, seats, and texture on the floor. These tubs get rid of the need for a sliding shower door, another dangerous part of a bathroom for a senior.
Walk-in tubs have water jets and these will rejuvenate the user and help with aches and pain and well as reducing stress. Conditions that may be helped include poor blood circulation, arthritis, diabetes, rheumatism, inflammation, fibromyalgia and back pain.
Simply soaking in warm water also has health benefits. It can help lower blood pressure and increase heart rate, which simulates exercise. It can also strengthen the heart and reduce the chance of arrhythmias.
