Can Sliding Transfer Benches Turn to the Other Side? - Q & A

Sliding transfer benches are designed for transfer patient who has limited mobility into shower or bath tub safely with minimum efforts. They are mostly used for elderly people who are at risk of fall accident and injury when taking shower or bath.

There are two major models of sliding transfer benches based on the seat that can or can not swivel to change directions. For the models with swivel seats, the seats can turn 360 degrees and lock at 4 different positions - front, back, left and right. As a result, the side handles can be positioned at 4 positions relative to the seat directions. However, for sliding transfer benches with seats that do not swivel, the seat can be installed to face either front or back so that the side handle can be positioned at right or left sides. The following questions are also quite common:

Do the legs go on the outside of one side of the tub?

  • Yes, 2 of the legs go on the outside of the tub and the other 2 are inside.

Does the chair come to the end of the tub? The user has to lift his legs over the edge of the tub as he slides in right?

  • The chair may come to the end of the tub depending on the width of your tub. The following picture shows the molded vision of this model offering similar functions. It will give you some ideas about how the bench is set up.

  • There are different ways to use this bench. You can turn the seat 90 degrees and have the patient sit on it. Afterwards, you can push it all the way inside the tub first and then turn it back, or turn it back first then push it in, or just push it in not have to turn (shower or bath in this direction). Either way, the user has to lift his legs (one after the other when sitting with safety belt fasten) to go over the edge.
