Bathing is a necessary act of our lives, whether we are in fine fettle or suffering from disease or sickness. Thankfully, there are lots of bathing aids available for the latter disposition. Beginning with shower benches to walk-in bath-tubs, there are ways to help out immobile patients. You can of course use washcloths to ward off water and soap use. The hand-grip shower comes in handy to clean typical parts. You can also make use of back scrubbers and foot brushes to clean those areas. Sick people should of course utilize antiseptic bath aid products. Soaps and conditioners laden with aloe vera are great options. Transfer benches help a lot in shifting patients to the bath-tub. Of course, there is always the option of shower chairs with arm rests where you just need sitting under the shower. It also comes with ankle straps and seat belts for the comfort and security of excessively sick patients. Some shower chairs can be folded and this facilitates storage and also doesn't obstruct daily life, typically when there is only one bathroom in the household. You are vulnerable to bacterial infection during sickness and it is necessary to maintain the bathroom in best condition at those times. Hygiene products should be strategically placed and of course you have to assess the actual space available. The dynamics will obviously change if the space is limited. Some benches come with holes to place your wrists while the seats are padded. Of course, the best material for these articles is steel cum aluminum that accords strength and sturdiness. There are clamp braces to adjust the height and blow-molded articles ensure adequate girth. These can handle up to 300 pounds, and you can also get bariatric benches if the patient is hefty. You should also keep wipes and sanitary stuff to maintain bathroom hygiene. The most important bath aid is of course the grab rail that supports you and patient from falling in the bathroom. The bathtub especially gets quite slimy at the edges and bathroom accidents are quite common around the world, typically with old people. Grab rails should also be placed near the commode.
