The four most common solutions that Bentley Baths provides are:
- Hydrotherapy Tubs For Arthritis
- Hydrotherapy Tubs For Pain
- Hydrotherapy Tubs For Insomnia
- Hydrotherapy Tubs For Diabetes.
Most of our customers are fairly mobile and can benefit from a true “walk-in” appliance. The general criteria for using a walk-in bathtub
is that the bather be capable of taking one or two steps (with or without assistance). They need to stand on one leg and raise the other foot the height of a standard stair step (usually about 5″-7″), and then shift their weight to that other leg while moving the original foot into the walk-in bathtub.
Many of our customers are facing serious health and mobility issues, be it age, injury, or illness related. If standing and stepping into a walk-in appliance is not practical, many people believe that their limited mobility forces them into showering, where threshold access can be minimized or eliminated. Bentley Baths is proud to offer a full line of appliances manufactured and designed specifically for transferring directly into the bathing environment from a wheelchair, walker or from a standing position.
As with thermostatic protection, we always recommend plumbing our walk-in and slide-in therapy tubs with separately plumbed shower systems to allow the bath filler and the shower head to flow independently of one another (this is actually an ADA guideline). This allows the bather to simultaneously fill the bath while operating the shower. Again, as safety is our priority, separating the bath water from the shower water allows the bather to bathe in safety, with less fear of being shocked or scalded. This is different than the traditional bath/shower systems which use a diverter to divert the water from the bath to the shower allowing for minimal control of water temperature and the possibility of injury. Our dual-valve shower systems and optional wall-mount slide bar are ADA compliant, easy to use, and provide safety from scalding.
