Why Shower Chairs with a Back and Arms are Safest

If you’ve ever owned a bath chair or a shower stool, you probably know that there are many varieties out there. All of them offer their own level of safety, as well as freedom of mobility. However, when it comes to elderly people or the disabled, they are often the most common subject of losing their balance, and falling is one of the leading injuries that can affect them. Therefore, it’s safe to say that a shower chair with arms and a backrest is probably a better idea to help you remain safe, even if it affects your mobility a little bit.

A heavy duty shower chair with backrests and arms can give you the comfort of knowing that you can safely sit, and it may even have some features that make them more convenient and easier to use in the shower.

Some Features of a Shower Chair with Back and Arms

As we mentioned prior, there are numerous things that a shower seat with a back and arms can do for you. For example, you can have a folding shower chair with a back and arms, which allows you to have the backrest down for easier mobility, or to use as a regular shower bench. Other features are as follows:

  • Some chairs help you in and out of the shower by providing a commode seat while having a backrest and a place to rest your arms.

By giving yourself a commode shower bench with a back and arms on it, you can do your business if you need to in an emergency, even while you are trying to bathe. At the same time, these shower seats can provide exceptional uses both in and out of the shower area.

  • High-quality PVC material provides excellent strength and support.

PVC is the standard quality of plastic that is primarily used in the medical field, as well as your plumbing. It is meant to last and is extremely durable and able to withstand various weights depending on the legs.

  • Extra-safe rubber feet can help you not slip in the bathtub or shower.

Bathtub surfaces and even walk-in shower floors can get slippery when there is soap on them, so it’s very important that you know you’re not going to slip in your shower chair with back and arms. By having high-quality latex rubber feet on the bottom of them, you can guarantee that the best shower stools with arms and a backrest won’t move when you are needing them to sit still.

  • If you have a walk-in shower, you can have a bench with a backrest, and armrest that rolls on wheels as well.

If you want to be able to add a little bit of mobility to your bathing experience, you may want to choose a shower chair with arms and a backrest that can roll on wheels, which will allow you to move in and out of the water easier, as well as be able to use the shower chair in other areas of the home. Of course, it is also important that the wheels on a shower seat with a back and arms on wheels has a locking mechanism on the wheels that can help you stay stationary when you need to.

  • Most bariatric shower chairs that are available for purchase with arms and a backrest also feature aluminum legs for extra support.

Aluminum is another very popular material when it comes to the medical field. It is lightweight but very sturdy, so it is commonly used for a lot of items, from crutches to canes, walkers, and even a bath chair with a back and arms. Because of aluminum's ability to provide extra support, some bath chairs can even support anywhere from 250-500+ pounds!

  • Non-commode seats have drain holes in order to keep water from standing while being slip-resistant in texture.

It is essential that you won’t be sliding around on your shower chair even if you’re using one with a backrest and place to rest your arms. Therefore, almost all plastic shower chairs that have these features also have drain holes strategically placed to allow any soap residue, and even water drain from them to help them dry better. At the same time, all heavy-duty shower chairs that come with arms and backrest are built with some sort of non-slip features, and almost every bath chair with back and arms are made to have a non-slip grip surface to help you stay in one spot.

  • A shower chair with a back and arms is universally designed for everyone.

One of the most common features that you’ll notice, especially when it comes to AvaCare Medical’s shower seat options that come with a back and arms support is the ability to be adjustable. In the medical field, shower chair manufacturers are aware that we as people come in all shapes and sizes, and therefore it is important that once you pick a shower chair with arms and backrest, you adjust the height of your shower chair as needed. For those who are extra tall, you may even decide to go with one of the bath seats with a back and support for your arms build specifically for taller people.
