The armrests are constructed so they go beyond the seat. This makes it easy both to get a good grip when a person wants to sit down but also to get up again. We have designed the armrests to bend out like a butterfly, so the body doesn’t get squeezed, getting in and out the shower bench. The butterfly armrests of the XXL-Rehab Shower bench also provide much better functionality for the user, compared to other shower benches with straight and short armrests where it is almost impossible for a bariatric user to get a good grip. The height of the shower bench is adjustable from 44 to 59 cm. It is very important to adjust the shower bench to the right height to have success getting in and out of the bench. If the shower bench is too high for the user, the feet will lift off the ground, making it hard to get seated in the shower bench. If the shower bench is too low, the user will have trouble getting up.
It is often a problem for bariatric users to be seated comfortably. Sometimes the seat depth is too short, sometimes too deep and with no back support. We have designed the seat to be individually adjusted to provide a comfortable seating. The backrest can be moved +/- 6 cm and the bended tubing assures that the right comfort can be found.
It is easy to clean the XXL-Rehab Shower bench with its removable seat pad. No tools are needed. It is also made easy to both handle and move the shower bench from place to place. In the construction of the shower bench we have only used high-tech lightweight tubing, to provide the highest strength at the lowest weight.
