Some of our very heavy patients who cannot walk and cannot afford the luxury of a walk-in bath find bathing in the tub to be a major challenge especially because of their weight. That is why it was a huge relief for me when Bill, a 58 year obese paraplegic informed me that he had received a bath lift chair as a gift from the foundation. After a month of use, I asked him to give me his evaluation of the bathlift. Add to that some research I did with other patients and here is what I gathered about this particular device.

This bath lift chair had some of the best reviews out of all that I sampled in this category. The only key negative to this product is the fact that if you are very tall, you need to have a longer tub so that there will be more leg room. But if you are not very tall I recommend it as an excellent and long lasting buy.
