How a Bath Lift Chair Works:

Bath lifts are fairly simple devices. A bath lift is designed to simply lower you from a seated position about the hieght of the side of you bath tub down to an inch or two above the bottom of the tub (to allow for the height of the bottom of the bath lift chair).

You simply position yourself on the bath lift chair, then push a button that lowers you into the bath tub. Most units have some sort of protection device that will not lower you into the bath tub unless the battery has a significant enough charge to lift you back out of the bath tub.

Once you've finished your bath, press the up button on the remote and the bath lift chair elevates you slowly to the starting position where you can lift your legs over the tub wall and stand up. If you can stand and sit on a normal kitchen chair, you should be able to manage getting inand out of the bath tub with a bath lift.

Just as a side thought - it's a good idea take your cordless phone into the bathroom with you. Keeping it on the toilet seat lid while you're in the bath room is a good idea, too. That way, if you do fall in the bathroom, you should be able to reach the phone on the toilet lid.

If you're looking to buy a bath lift, I recommend visiting US Medical first. They tend to have the best prices and a good selection. If you can;t find what you're looking for at US Medical, then try either Active Forever or


AmeriGlide Bath Lift at US Medical - $ 499.00

Safely enjoying your bath shouldn't have to cost a lot of money. This was AmeriGlide's motivation when it developed this bath lift model based on its high-end Premium bath lift. It uses a compact frame built with aluminum components and a high-strength, one piece polymer body. What's more, you can install the AmeriGlide Bath Lift in just minutes because it uses suction cup feet. Safety features aren't an afterthought, either, because this lift has the same intelligent controller that the AmeriGlide Premium Bath Lift has.
