One of the most important factors that people who are disabled must consider is bathtub safety. However, bathtub safety is frequently overlooked because many disabled people donít know what kinds of bath safety products are available in the marketplace. Thousands of bathtub accidents occur every year. This is the primary reason why it is so very important to be aware of the things that should be considered on order to avoid any bathtub accidents and to always practice bathtub safety.

People who are disabled have physical limits and different needs that require different bathroom equipments and products that meet their needs. Conventional bathtub safety facilities and equipment must be modified in order to meet the disabled personís safety requirements and needs. Without these modifications, bathtub safety can be dangerous particularly for those people who have difficulty getting in and out of the bathtub safely. By placing a shower chair in the bathtub assurance to the person who is disabled will be provided that it is safe to use the bathtub. Similarly, shower heads that are hand held can provide the control and flexibility to prevent blistering while in the bathtub.

A walk in bathtub can also make the bathtub more accessible for people with disabilities. Walk in bathtubs are just as relaxing as a standard bathtub. This type of bathtub does not block the exit and entrance since the disabled person doesn't have to climb over the edge of the bathtub to get out or in.

One of the easiest additions to a bathroom are grab bars. Grab bars are built in the sides and walls of walk in bathtubs providing additional safety when exiting, entering, or moving around the bathtub. These grab bars are frequently made out of heavy duty or chrome plated steel. Whenever grab bars are added for safety reasons in the bathroom, it must be remembered that the use of wide grips may be too large for a small senior.

However, if a regular tub is still preferred, there are still many items that should be added for additional safety. This includes items such as transfer benches, seats, and stools. Other areas of the bathroom that should be considered for modification for safety reasons include toilet frames and seats. In addition, anti slip tape can also be applied to the floor of the bathtub to make it slip free. Slip resistant bathtub floors can also ensure that the disabled person has stability while in the bathtub.
