As this Medline shower bench features a strong anodized aluminum frame, you can be assured of its improved performance for years to come. The height of the frame can even be adjusted from 16.5" to 21.5" in 1" increments for added convenience.

    This chair was for an 88 year old and has worked out perfect! She can now shower with no problem of falling.

    Customer review by STLDaughter

    5.0 stars by STLDaughter

    I purchased this transfer bench for my elderly parents who were having trouble getting in and out of the bath tub. Their PT recommended getting a transfer bench. Those at the medical equipment stores are much more expensive (up to twice as much or more). This bench is very sturdy and safe. My father who has spinal stenosis was able to sit down, lift his legs into the tub, and scoot over with no assistance. He was so proud! For my mother who prefers to stand in the tub and shower, this bench provides a safe method for her to get in and out and still leaves enough room for her to stand and take a shower. Also, purchased and installed a grab bar to help with that. We are very happy with this equipment.

    Customer review by Chuck893

    5.0 stars by Chuck893

    This is a solidly built, basic transfer bench for someone who cannot stand in the shower or tub but still has some mobility and upper body strength. It does not have a sliding seat or anything sophisticated, but for a patient who can assist in his/her own movement it is excellent, and a real bargain. It is intended for use inside a regular bathtub, but is more useful in more situations than a simple shower chair, which assumes that a patient can use both legs to climb in. If a patient cannot use at least one leg, being able to sit down outside the tub and lift the legs over is ideal, but many of these benches are pretty pricey. This one does the job at a bargain price. The half that goes inside the tub has a pair of large suction cups on the legs to anchor it. The grab handle is solid and angled slightly away from the body so that the patient is not cramped up against it. The legs are adjustable up or down, and the back is both removable and reversible, all for maximum utility.

    • NO, you cannot move the handle/grab-bar from one side to the other. Those who answered "Yes" are incorrect. There are slots to insert the grab bar posts on ONLY one side, the side on which the backrest slots are located.

    • It is easy to pull the seat back off and install it on the opposite side of the bench. That makes the handle to to the other side.

    • Yes you can change the handle to either side. This is one of its benefits. I know this because upon first assembling mine the handle was placed on the wrong side. It was easily corrected.

    • NOPE, YOU HAVE TO REMOVE THE SLIDING GLASS DOORS AND REPLACE THEM WITH A CURTAIN ROD, SAFEST WAY.

    • My moms bathtub used to have sliding glass doors but they were removed long ago. This bench would not fit in her tub because of the way the tub sides slanted. Also the toilet was too close to the tub to be able to use the bench properly. I hope this helps in some way.

    • depending on how wide the opening would be, I would say no. My mom's had a sliding shower door and we had to remove them to allow for her legs to swing over the side of the tub. Her door opening was approximately 30 inches.

    • The way the transfer bench is made, you should be able to use with a tub that has a slding door as long as the seat/bench area is raised high enough to clear the track that holds the sliding door. The unit comes with adjustable legs all around. The incremental adjustments are about 1/4" apart. I would see no problem with using this unit in your particular situation.

    • You would have to be a contortionist to do so and most users would not have that flexibility. I would remove the sliding doors before using. Also purchase a hose and spray head that can be attached to the tub faucet.

    • I agree. You can't really close the shower curtain with this product half-way out of the tub. You would have to have a hand-held sprayer and use it carefully.

    • I could not find a way to use the shower curtain effectively. I just put a bunch of towels down on the floor first.
      by HBunny12/11/2014
      Was this answer helpful? (1) (0)
    • Yes it might, but I have found that by placing a towel on the outer part of the seat (the part on that hangs over the outside of the tub) it eliminates the water from soaking the bathroom floor. Also make sure the shower curtain liner is placed inside the tub (part closest to the faucet). By doing both of these things there should not be a problem.

    • I put the shower curtain on the bench and drape the ends down into the tub. I don't have any water leakage this way.

    • We place shower curtain on outside edge & use a hand held shower head. We have not had any problems with water getting on floor because hand held shower head is aimed away from edge of tub.

    • I thought the same thing, but I actually pull the shower curtain liner up over the bench and place it slightly under my leg and make sure the rest of the liner is pulled down in the front and back of the chair...works great, no water ever touches the floor!

    • I cut a piece out of the clear liner from the floor to the chair itself, the rest I left long. I have a regular shower curtain on the outside. works great.
