How to Select A Shower Chair / Shower Stool?

Back to Shower Chairs

Most of the shower chairs on the following list are built of rust-proof materials and featured by worldwide patented "Snap-on" design, which means that they are easy to install and uninstall - a feature saving space and making travel easy. This feature is reflected either in the names of the products or in the feature details. To select an appropriate shower chair / shower stool, you need to think of the following features:

Arms and Back: Based on your personal preference, you can select a shower chair without arms and back, a shower chair with back without arms, a shower chair with arms without back, or a shower chair with arms and back. For each shower chair, the arms and back are removable.

Overall Width at Base: This measurement helps determine if the shower chair fits the space in your bath tub.

Seat Height: This depends on your height and the height level you want seat. For most our shower chairs, the seat heights are adjustable.

Weight Capacity: Depending on the level of stability that fits your need, you can select a shower chair with weight capacity of 250, 350 or 500 lbs. Heavy duty shower chair models that holds up to 500 lbs are sometimes referred to as bariatric or obese models also offer larger seats than standard models.

Unit Weight: Some shower chair models may offer similar features except the unit weight of the shower chair itself. Those with lighter weights can be better choice for travel.

If you have specific questions on specific shower chair products, contact uCan Health customer service or consult a therapist experienced in durable medical equipment selection.
