Types of Walk-In Tubs
Walk-in tubs offer a safer alternative to a traditional bathtub and come in several different types. Depending on your specific needs, you might just need some basic options. However, with modern walk-in tub design, you can opt for the safest and most luxurious bathing experience available.
The soaker is the most basic type of walk-in tub if you’re not looking for anything too fancy. This model will usually include several standard safety features including non-slip surfaces, easy access, ADA compliant seats, fast-acting drains and more. Soaker tubs are usually larger and deeper which allow for a deeply relaxing full bodied soak.
Whirlpool tubs shoot jets of water to offer a luxurious, high pressure, deep massage to release muscle tension. Basic models simply offer jetted massages while higher-end therapeutic models come with aromatherapy and chromotherapy capabilities.
An air tub uses jets of air with adjustable speeds strategically positioned all around the tub to offer a more effervescent and euphoric bubble massage. This type of massage offers a much gentler and smoother sensation to the body compared to a jacuzzi and holds many therapeutic benefits.
Bariatric walk-in tubs have been specifically designed for larger individuals and allow for easy access and movement in and around the tub. These bathtubs can be used as a basic soaker or have all the customization options you ever wanted.
Wheelchair Accessible Tub
As the name suggests, a wheelchair accessible walk-in tub is designed to offer wheelchair users a safe and comfortable bathing experience. This luxury size tub will allow individuals who require assisted bathing to gain back some much-needed independence.
