Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing, or other special needs!
Getting in and out of the bathtub can be challenging for individuals aging in place and more. If you’re looking for something to help prevent falls, check out the Step2Tub. According to the product’s description, it is the “safest way to get in and out of the tub” independently.
The Step2Tub is made of industry-grade steel and features an extra-wide landing base and a non-slip bath step to reduce the risk of slips or falls. The step stool is equipped with a dual clamp system that locks itself to the sides of the bathtub, making it “ultra-secure.”
Other features include:
- Perpendicular handrails padded for extra support
- The height of the grab bar is adjustable to suit your preference
- Can hold up to 300 pounds
- Equipped with a dual clamp system that locks itself to the sides of the bathtub, making it “ultra-secure”
- And more
