La Crosse's Medical Supplies Experts on How to Buy a Shower Chair or Bath Seat, La Crosse, Wisconsin

When a loved one gets older, it can be a good idea to install a shower chair or bath seat in their bathroom. Doing so will provide them with extra stability and security in the shower. At Hilton Medical Supply, based in La Crosse, WI, they’ll help you choose one that is best for your needs. Offering a wide range of medical supplies, from wheelchairs to lift chairs, they know what to consider when making this choice.

When you begin looking for the right shower chair or bath seat, the medical supplies experts recommend keeping the following factors in mind:

  • Arm & Back Support: All shower and bath chairs are designed to provide added support for your elderly family members. That said, some are equipped with additional features, like arm and back rests. These features can be removable, as well. Take a look at the space you’re working with and decide if these are necessary.
  • Medical SuppliesSeat Quality: Like lift chairs, the bath seat can still be designed for comfort. It must also be wide enough to support the person sitting in it, though, and it should not be something they could easily slip out of. Check to see if the seat also has holes to let water drain through. This important safety feature will prevent your loved one from slipping in the seat.
  • Toiletry Compartments: For added safety, some shower chairs and bath seats come equipped with compartments to store toiletries. This removes the need to get up from the chair to grab items in the shower.
