Owensboro Home Health occupational therapist found this for me. It sets up like a dream and is so secure and stable. Sit on the bench and take your time getting your feet and legs over, and use the rail to balance and support. I've had numerous shower benches through the years. This one made by Drive is worth twice the price as it's the best and sturdiest one for folks of almost any weight. Overstock is great to provide home health and durable medical equipment at very reasonable prices. Thank you O dot co!
My husband had a stroke. He weighs 230#. I bought the bariatric chair rated to hold 500#, thinking it would be very sturdy for him and it certainly is. It Works well in the tub, will move to the shower stall as he progresses with his walking. Like the online price. The local medical product stores here charge a shameful 2-4 times the price I find on Overstock.com. for the same manufacturer. I certainly would reccomend the chair.
This bench was purchased with my mother in mind. She had back surgery on October 27, 2015 and had been in hospital and rehab until January 16,2016. She went home with PT, OT, and a CNA for around eight hours a day. Within a week she had fallen of course after the CNA had gone home but she did not hurt her self. Anyway after couple of weeks she landed back in hospital for a week because I say she was over medicated. So upon discharge I asked her if she wanted to come stay with me and she agreed. The transfer bench I bought to assist her in getting in and out of shower, hopefully without falling. Mom has been with me since February 6, 2016 and taken quite a few showers. And I am happy to say this transfer bench is just what the Doctor ordered. It was very easy to put together and with no tools necessary. She loves it and when she is through using it I have the perfect place to use it, in my shower. She doesn't weigh nearly enough to warrant a Bariatric bench , but I do and that was the reason I purchased it, besides her really needing it temporarily. One last thing it cost less than a hundred dollars and is well worth it.
