Walk-In Bathtub Help Prevent Falls
One of the best reasons to purchase a walk-in bathtub is because of how much safer they are. 250,000 people a year go to emergency rooms from accidents in bathrooms, many of those involving falls. In addition, 80% of household accidents occur in bathrooms! I’m sure we have all experienced that close call in a slippery shower.
Ella’s Bubbles walk-in bathtubs are much safer to use then an upright shower and they offer anti-slip seats and floors!
None of us enjoy reflecting on possible injuries or getting older, but planning ahead is always valuable, if we are 74 or 47. None of us can afford a bad fall. Anything we can do to minimize that risk is worth investing in. And that investment only gets more valuable as we get older.
Walk-in Bathtub Increases Access for
Anyone with Limited Mobility
Whether we are looking at walk-in tubs for our parents, for ourselves now, or planning ahead, as these pictures show, getting in and out of these beautiful tubs is a breeze! And if anyone we know requires a wheelchair, Ella’s tubs are so easy to maneuver, they provide a great deal of additional self-sufficiency and can even help facilitate independent living.
A walk-in tub is convenient and extremely enjoyable now, and the safety aspects are important for all of us, but especially our family and friends with mobility restrictions. And textured anti-slip floors are included.
Ella’s Walk-In Bathtubs have many customizable options designed to fit your mobility needs and your specific room size.
A few of our favorites are:
- Low step in height
- Customizable Swing Out or Swing in Doors
- Soft Slide Acrylic Accessibility/ Wheelchair Access Technology
- Optional Safety Bars
- Optional Wider Doors
Innovative Safety Features
In addition to all of the valuable accessibility and slip protection options we just mentioned, Ella’s Bubbles is proud to offer many other safety features:
One potential problem of some walk-in tubs can be that the heated water is turned on only after you are inside, so making sure that the water doesn’t get dangerously hot is very important, Ella’s Bubbles walk-in tubs offers the special anti-scald technology to safeguard us.
Anti-Leak Safety Door Latch System
Another possible risk in some walk-in tubs can be water leaks. To protect you and your home, Ella’s has a three separate door latch seals. All of that is to make sure that the water is safely in the tub and will not leak.
Patented Exterior Mounted 360 Swivel Tray
At first glance this beautiful tray might not seem like a safety feature, and it is also convenient for keeping your important things safe and dry. For instance, for holding drinks, cell phones or books. But especially for those with mobility issues having a nearby place to keep their towel really can be a safety feature as well.
Incredible Convenience Features
Heated Seats and Back Rest
Ella’s Bubbles has eliminated several of the common complaints about walk-in bathtubs with their heated seat and heated lower back option. Since with all walk-in tubs you are inside as you fill and drain the tub, they can be cold when it’s draining, so the heaters will keep you nice and warm as you are filling and draining the tub.
In addition, they offer an inline heater to keep you warm and comfortable longer as the water starts to cool.
Quick Drain Technology
Since you are safely sealed inside the tub, the water must drain before you can get out. Long drain times are a common complaint with walk-in bathtubs, but we’ve got a solution! Ella’s tubs offer the most efficient dual drain system in the industry. On many tubs they use one 1 ½ inch drain, but Ella’s tubs have two 2-inch drains.
Easy to Maintain and Clean
Ella’s Bubbles tubs are easy to maintain and clean, and they even have an Ozone system built in for maximum sanitation. Also the seal is easily removable for cleaning.
Possibly the MOST convenient feature about Ella’s Bubbles Walk-In Tubs is that most installations can be completed in just one day!
