Find the one that makes the difference for you

A shower chair helps you when you have difficulty sitting in a standard bath tub or standing in a shower. While these chairs are generally used by the elderly or physically handicapped anyone with an injury or who is unable to stand for long periods of time could benefit from a chair that can be used in the shower. A shower seat offers the user the option of once again being able to have a shower instead of a bath.

Portable shower chairs can be stools, hav side arms, backless chair or backed chair. Some have pads while others do not. The ability to adjust the height of the chair is a nice feature as is the ability of the chair to have padded hand grips. When considering a chair, look for ones that have strong legs which have rubber tips or other similar non-slip material on the bottom of the legs. Ensure the weight capacity of the chair matches your requirements.

Also look for a shower chair that will not corrode and which is easy to clean. If you are by yourself, the weight of the chair and ease of movement with it is also important. Chairs are usually made of heavy plastic or metal such as aluminum but can also come with a teakwood seat. Shower chairs should be able to be used in both a regular or steam shower.
