Why Buy A Meditub From Knoxville Walk-In Tubs?
Walk-in bathtubs have their own list of pros and cons. But for those who are experiencing mobility issues, the benefits certainly far outweigh the disadvantages. According to a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC, for short), your bathroom is a surprisingly dangerous room compared to the other ones in your house, with more injuries occurring in bathrooms across America than in any other place within the home. When taking into consideration that these injuries didn’t only occur among the elderly (the study included all persons 15 or older), a clearer picture of the risk involved in the simple activity of using the bathroom emerges.
Walk-In Tubs Help Reduce The Risk Of Injury In Your Bathroom
Walk-in bathtubs reduce the risk of bathroom injuries through the implementation of a few special safety features. A door allows bathers to enter the bathtub without having to lift their leg too high, and while people who don’t experience problems with decreased mobility might see this feature as a silly way to be lazy, elderly and impaired persons will fully understand why having a door makes bathing a more pleasant experience. Many injuries among elderly occur when getting in or out of a bathtub and the use of a door greatly reduces the risk of such an injury.
Furthermore, non-slip, easy to clean surfaces also help reduce the risk of a nasty fall. And lastly, thermo-regulation adds to the convenience of using a walk-in tub, as it assists in keeping your bathwater temperature just right, eliminating the risk of injury caused by having to stretch to open a tap and run hot water into the tub again.
