Showering

The ShowerBuddy SB1 is made up of a comfortable, sturdy chair and a bridge unit to allow transfer:

  • Simply line up the unit with a step-in shower and move the seated user back in the chair, along the bridge.
  • Safe, waterproof suction feet fix the chair to the shower floor.
  • The bridge can be removed at this point, allowing caregiver access.
  • The chair can rotate, offering different positions to suit preferences and get assistance with cleaning.
  • Once finished, the chair connects back onto the bridge, allowing for easy transfer out of the shower unit.
  • The base can stay in the shower, or be removed quickly so other family members can use the shower as usual.

Toileting

Use of the existing toilet in a bathroom is made easier with the ShowerBuddy SB1’s comfortable chair. It’s height-adjustable to suit the user.

  • Locking caster wheels allow the ShowerBuddy SB1 chair unit to be maneuvered and secured over the toilet.
  • When the chair is not in use, a full overlay cushion accessory closes the opening, making the ShowerBuddy SB1 a comfortable day chair.
  • If the user needs a nighttime commode, the ShowerBuddy SB1 is ready for the task with included pan and lid.
