Renovating the first floor bathroom had been put on hold because of Hurricane Florence. All contractors are and continue to be booked solid. Suddenly Mom was unable to walk the flight of stairs to the upstairs shower. The Swivel Sliding Transfer Bench makes it possible for Mom to easily shower in the tub/shower on the first floor. She has plenty of space to sit down on the end, can operate the swivel herself and can slide into the shower area with minimal help lifting her leg over the tub edge. The unit is well made, well engineered, and easy to put together. It sits very firmly on the flat area of the tub. It doesn't wobble. We got the extra handle to help Mom stand up in order to wash all areas. We added grab bars to the side and front shower walls and a rubber bath mat underneath the unit for safety. We roll up the shower curtain and use only the shower curtain liner, which had two slits cut in it, while she showers. Very little water gets on the floor. It's only been in use two weeks but assuming no defects, it operates just as you would like it to. The key is identifying a person's needs, measuring all spaces well and choosing the right model.
We have a house with small bathrooms and our shower has a 4" rim around the bottom (handicapped accessible but not wheelchair accessible) so our problem was how to get someone from mechanical lift into the shower when there was not room to turn the lift in any direction--straight into the room and straight back out required. The person being showered can sit independently but cannot scoot or slide as is required by most transfer benches. This longer sliding transfer bench gets him from outside the shower into the shower by sliding the chair along the tracks of the transfer bench. With this device we can use the lift to deposit him on the chair (without having to turn the lift once in the bathroom), then slide him into the shower. We had tried all kinds of ramps and transport devices to accomplish this so were thrilled when this extra long bench simplified showering. We've only used it a few times so don't know how it will hold up over time. . It is rated for hefty weight but I am curious if the long sliders will support 200+ pounds with repeated use. So far, so good!!
All expectations met. My wife was very pleased with the quality of this product. It met 100% of her needs. No damage in shipment. All information accurate as advertised. The specifications were clear and accurate.
I’ve had my chair for a few weeks now and I absolutely love it. It swivels and slides smoothly and feels very sturdy.
I had to convince my mother that this item would be just right for her. She could not step into the shower un-assisted. She used this the first time and was sold. She loves it.
She said she didn't know how she managed before. Easy to assemble and quite sturdy.
My mother had trouble getting in and out of the bath. This device works very well and makes it so much easier. Wish I had found this product earlier. I recommend it for those who are challenged in their mobility.
This Eagle Health Supplies Sliding Shower Transfer Bench with Cut-out Seat and Adjustable Height is perfect for those of us with aging parents. The unit assembled easily and the instructions were clear and easy to follow. Once this was in place, it made getting in and out of the shower easy and risk free. I was impressed with how well this worked. It is also very sturdy, which is important when entrusting a device with the safety of a loved one. Highly Recommended!
Look, no one WANTS to need this but whether for an elderly relative or a broken femur, this seat saved me. Easy to install. Easy to use. The seat swivels so I can get in and out of the tub without fearing a fall and slides in and out so that the shower water stays IN the shower. Truly a godsend.
Easy to put together and works perfectly. He couldn't wait to try it out. Hubby suffers from severe MS and has lost the ability to walk and arm strength comes and goes. We have had a chair in the tub that we paid way too much for. It rocks alot during transfer to and from wheel chair and requires straddling the tub wall and he is always afraid of slipping. We have a small bathroom and didn't think we would find one that would allow him to transfer to and from his mobility chair outside of the tub, due to the sink and toilet barely allowing room for the chair. We were excited to find this chair as it allows him to do just that.
