Bath Safety Products for Seniors
Published: Dec 13, 2010
The fundamental purpose of bathing is to maintain health and physical well being of the body. While most young, able-bodied people do not think twice about taking a bath, bathing is more difficult, more time consuming, and more hazardous for older people with disabilities.
The National Center for Health Statistics in 1987 reported that about 10 percent of all people over the age of 65 have difficulty bathing and 90% of all home accidents occur in the bathroom. The number of bathroom accidents increase everyday which includes death risk for people of all ages. A careful study of available bathtubs and shower suggests that safety was never a major issue in their design, keeping that in mind many bath safety products have been developed and made available to people all over the world to avoid any accidents. These accessories greatly assist in easy and safe transferring of a person to get in and out of the tub.
