These tubs may not sexy by any standards but if you or someone you know can't soak in a tub for physical reasons does it matter?
All of us want to "age in place gracefully and safely" but most likely your or someone you know has medical reasons that just lifting your leg and balancing and not slipping into your standard tub is not going to happen without a lot of stress and/or injury.
If you or someone you know has problems like this, you need to check out this great company for walk-in tubs. They are easy to use and comfortable.
I can easily get into and out of my bath tub anytime I want. Quite frankly before some of my clients in the last couple of years inquired about some tub solutions, I had no idea that getting in and out of a tub would ever be a problem....Well it is....Read some of their stories here, and be enlightened like I was.
If you think you don't have room for one, think again with 37 different models out there and most of these replacing your standard tub/shower these have been made to fit.
Don't we ALL deserve a nice soak once in awhile?
