Anyone can enjoy these delightful showers. Handicap showers are specially designed to help people with mobility problems enjoy the freedom and flexibility of taking a shower safely and securely by themselves. In the privacy of this spacious area, any person can have their own valued privacy while experiencing warm water flowing over, caressing and cleaning the body. These are designed to provide safety, allow people the privilege of private bathing and space to accommodate various needs.
These shower stalls are larger than normal to allow the addition of grab bars on one or two walls and space for a shower chair or shower assistant. A shower chair is normally a plastic seat and back on an aluminum rust resistant frame designed to handle and repel water. The plastic had a non-skid design protecting the user from falls. This additional space allows a helper to assist a wheelchair-bound person to move from the wheelchair to the other chair in preparation for bathing.
Entrances to handicap showers are designed with only an inch or 2 inch lip, allowing people to easily step into the area or wheelchairs to be maneuvered into the space. The wider entrance allows easier access and space for more people.
Water is provided through a flexible hand-held shower head. The head can be left mounted on the wall for people who like to stand providing the benefits of a regular shower. A long flexible hose runs between the mental connection on the shower wall and the shower head, allowing the user to remove the showerhead and direct water as he or she chooses. People with problems turning around can use a flexible hose and showerhead to rinse their backs. If people are sitting in chairs, this flexible device allows them to enjoy the full benefit of showers without standing or moving.
Handicap showers can be enjoyed by anyone; the flexible hand-held shower head adds another dimension to the enjoyment to getting clean.
