Bath Bench Modifications

What is it?

Client Ron has a bath bench modified to his unique specifications.

CanAssist's engineering team has modified commercial bath benches to make them safer, more comfortable and easier to use. In the example shown right, a store-bought bath bench was made more ergonomic by making the backrest angle and dump angle more adjustable. As well, an alternative means of securing the device to the tub surface was provided for added safety.
