Are these bathroom aids OK for the disabled or the elderly?
Absolutely. One of the most common places to fall at home or slip away is your bathroom. That is why we offer such a wide range of bathing aids, ideal for both the elderly and the disabled.
The products in our bathroom help category are designed to help you stay stable and make bathing safer, but still make it pleasant, especially for those who are older or live with a condition such as:
- Sciatica or other back pain
- Joint Pain
- Respiratory problems such as COPD
- Muscle weakness or pain
- Angina or other heart conditions
- Multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's or other neurological disorders
How useful are bath aids daily?
Most people like to bathe at least once a day, not only to stay clean but also to relax and relieve pain, so with the right aids in the bathroom, this activity can be much easier and more enjoyable.
Preventing falls is the key to reducing fractures and other injuries that can seriously undermine your independence when performing daily activities. For that reason you will find a whole range of bathroom aids on our site that can help you and give you extra support and confidence while bathing.
Temporary bathroom aids, such as a suction cup handle or foldable shower stool , are lightweight and easy to transport - ideal for overnight stays in a hotel or at friends' homes. More permanent variations, such as a wall-mounted fixed handle or a wall-mounted shower chair , can be mounted at home for long-term use.
Our bathroom products also meet a wide range of needs - from bath brushes with a long handle , specially designed for the elderly, who find it difficult to reach their toes or back, to transfer bath benches for people who are supported by a caregiver to bathe or showering.

After a number of years of practical experience, I can confidently say that we know how to best respond to the diverse needs of our customers. We not only offer top quality bath aids in different styles and sizes to meet your preferences, we also ensure affordability.

What is the advantage of these bathroom aids?
Thanks to our extensive range of bathroom aids, you are likely to find the tools you need - whether you are a healthcare professional looking for the right product for a patient, an informal caregiver looking for a loved one, or you live with a disability, which means you need some extra support at home.
Falls are the main cause of hospital admissions for the elderly and often have a significant impact on independent living. Our bathroom aids for the elderly, including toilet supports to prevent overbalancing and shower chairs to help prevent slipping, are a simple and affordable way to prevent falls.
We also offer a range of bathing aids for the disabled, who have caregiver assistance for bathing. With the shower trolley / shower stretcher , a caregiver can safely shower a child or a smaller person, while a Ropox nursing / swap bench prevents awkward bending for the caregiver and allows them to dress their patients after bathing.
