Lumex Bariatric Bath Bench with 600 lb Weight Capacity
This Lumex bariatric bath bench is for persons who have trouble safely lifting their legs over the side of the bathtub. When they bath this bench will set in a way that will enable the bather to set on the bench outside the tub and then carefully slide into the tube. Their legs are lifted over the tub rail while safely seated.
Here are some instructions from the manufacture:
