bathtub bathroom

Therapeutic bathtubs have multiple benefits

  • Perhaps they are elderly and have difficulty stepping in and out of a normal height tub. This can be risky and unsafe, given the slippery wet floors.
  • Maybe they have arthritis or other ailment that needs relief from the ability to sit and soak comfortably. Sometimes bending all the way down and getting back up with a traditional tub can cause further pain, rather than relieving it.
  • A person with a physical disability that impairs them from actually being able to step over and into a regular bathtub would appreciate the benefits of a therapeutic tub.

Why can a therapeutic bathtub benefit you?

  • They are built with a bench or seat
  • Allows for a full body soak in a comfortable position
  • Eliminates the need to lower oneself all the way to the floor for a soak
  • There is a swinging door for easy access into the tub
    • The door opens into the tub allowing the person room to sit down and then easily close the door comfortably
    • The door seals completely to prevent leaking
  • There is a conveniently located grab bar for maneuverability while adjusting to sitting and/or standing positions

Leone Plumbing installed one of these beneficial tubs for a customer in need while remodeling their entire bathroom. We also installed a grab bar and a larger vanity with mirror to create a far more functional and therapeutic bathroom experience!
