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

  • Simply line up the unit with the step-in shower and mover the seated user back in the chair, along with the bridge
  • Safe, waterproof suction feet fix the chair to the shower floor
  • The bridge can be removed at this point, allowing the 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
SB1 Showerbuddy over the toilet


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 manoeuvred 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 night-time commode, the Showerbuddy SB1 is ready for the task with included pan and lid.
