Band lift al­lows for a real soak in the tub

Daily Mail - - Assisted & Living -

A BAND bath lift can make a big dif­fer­ence to your bathing con­fi­dence and is eas­ily fit­ted by an in­staller in about an hour. It con­sists of a fab­ric band on a roller which re­tracts into a wall-fixed unit. The band pulls out, runs across the bath rim and slots into a floor-mounted bracket. A bat­tery pow­ered mo­tor gen­tly ro­tates the roller, let­ting out the band and low­er­ing the user into the bath. The roller is ro­tated in the re­verse di­rec­tion to lift the user up. Some in­clude a help­ful wall-fixed grab rail. The bather just needs to be able to lift their legs over the side of the bath when slid­ing onto the re­in­forced polypropy­lene band, and to be able to sit up with­out a back­rest as it low­ers. The big ad­van­tage of this lift is that the belt low­ers the user right down to the bot­tom of the bath, giv­ing the free­dom to lie back and en­joy a re­lax­ing soak. And when the band is with­drawn into the unit, the bath is clear of equip­ment and can be used by oth­ers in the house­hold.
