Many countries around the world are reporting a higher percentage of aging citizenry. These days, senior citizens are more comfortable living on their own than with their grown-up children. With technological advancement, the environment is getting more elderly- and disabled-friendly.
Take taking a bath, for instance. There are now available walk in bath tubs with various models helping people of different levels of assistance-needed to bathe. Seabridge Bathing manufactures and distributes seven unique models of walk-in bathtubs through dealers in the United States, Canada, and Australia.
Their walk-in bathtubs are specially designed to be easy to enter and easy to exit. The revolutionary palm pad door opener operates with just a push-down with an open hand, closed fist, or elbow. For safety, textured walk-in tub floors are used.
And for comfort, there is the comfortable soft seat cushion available on some models and the luxurious 16 air jet massage. It's like experiencing a spa right at home.
It is a pity that not all new houses come with a bath-tub nowadays considering the health benefits of a heated bath. Just look at the health benefits a Seabridge walk-in bath can provide:
