Walk-in Bath Case Study
Let us dive into the walk-in bath case study of Mrs D.
Mrs. D recently struggled to lift her leg over the side of the bath due to a knee operation. Getting up after having a bath was incredibly difficult for her. Mrs D really enjoys having a bath and didn’t want her mobility challenges to affect her daily routines and lifestyle.
To provide Mrs. D with a bathing solution that minimizes the strain on her knees and impact on her lifestyle.
We designed an ideal solution that included installing the Stowbridge bath in place of the old bath whilst leaving existing tiles undamaged. The Stowbridge was the right solution because it included a low-level access entry through the door. Additionally, it had a lift that would assist Mrs. D in standing up once her bath was complete.
We’ve helped thousands of customers across the UK to bathe independently. Here are answers to some of the most common questions we’ve heard over the years:

How Do Walk-in Baths Work?
The walk-in bathtub is designed for ease of access and independent, comfortable bathing.

When in use, the bath allows its user to have a relaxing soak in either a traditional seated position or on a built-in seat, depending on the model chosen.
