Showering with Wheelchairs

Wheelchair users often have a hard time showering and this is the reason why shower wheelchairs have become so popular. Often, those who do not have shower wheelchairs need assistance in order to bathe properly. Through shower wheelchairs, physically disabled individuals can feel more independent and have more privacy while bathing.

Although shower chairs are already available, shower wheelchairs are preferred because they allow users to travel to and from the shower. Furthermore, shower wheelchairs have added features such as foldable arm rests or even seat openings for better accessibility for all parts of the body. Most often, they are made of stainless steel but many have been developed in plastic. The wheelchairs also have seats made of some form of waterproof material.

Shower wheelchairs are very useful, but the shower must be able to accommodate the wheelchair. An ideal shower stall or shower area would be where the wheelchair user can directly enter it without any restrictions. Grab bars should be situated in a position that is easily accessable for the wheelchair user and the shower head if static should be at a sensible height - if the shower head is not fixed then it should be within reach of the wheelchair user.

To be truly safe, the wheelchair user's shower stall must be specifically made for his use. If not, adjustments must be made to make everything within reach and have grab bars and other features to accommodate the weight of the wheelchair user who will need them for support.
