|Bathtub Transfer Benches
A transfer bench allows you to sit down on the bath seat while both of your legs are still positioned outside of the tub. Once safely seated, you simply need to lift one leg at a time over the bathtub wall and scoot your bottom sideways across the bench top until you arrive in the center of the tub.
As with the bathtub bench described above, you have the option to back up and sit down on the side of the bath chair’s seat while both of your legs are still positioned outside the bathtub. From a safe seated position, you can then lift one leg at a time over the bathtub wall and turn your hips to face the shower head. Or, if your balance skills are sufficient to do so, alternatively you can “step” over the bathtub wall and then sit down on the bath seat.
