A Walk-in Tub is an Accessible Bathing Option for Older Adults
Ella’s Bubbles announces Ella Walk-In Bathtubs, the perfect solution for senior Accessibility.
The National Institute on Aging (NIA) reports that one in three American seniors fall each year. Moreover, eighty percent of these slip and fall accidents involving seniors happen in the bathroom, the most hazardous room in the home for older people. Installing an Ella Walk-In bathtub will eliminate the biggest danger in the bathroom and transform this precarious room into a more accessible place for seniors.
For older adults, a walk-in tub is a safe bathing option that every family should consider installing for their older members. Ella Walk-In Bathtubs are thoughtfully designed and tested to provide the most accessible bathing experience possible. All tubs come with a textured slip resistant floor. Grab bars are strategically placed for each unique model. Ella Walk-In Bathtubs also come with thermostatic control valves to prevent accidental scalding.
Ella Walk-in Bathtubs are built from a solid piece of high grade non-porous acrylic, making them impermeable to mold and mildew. This type of construction further provides a safety advantage over gelcoat tubs which many other manufacturers of walk-in bathtubs use. It also makes maintenance of these tubs much easier.
While safety concerns always top the list when shopping for a walk-in bathtub, Ella Walk-In Bathtubs are designed to provide numerous health benefits for seniors. Scientific research has shown that full body submersion in warm water lowers blood pressure and this has a lasting effect on the body long after the bath is over. Hot water immersion and massage also induces a relaxed state that greatly lowers stress and can improve the quality of sleep.
Depending on the model you select, Ella Walk-In Bathtubs provide air massage, water massage, or a combination of both. Infusion™ Microbubble Therapy is a patented technology that is highly pleasurable and quickly gaining popularity. This technology introduces millions of microscopic oxygen-rich bubbles into the bathwater, instantly relaxing the skin and invigorating the body. Infusion™ Microbubble Therapy also has the added advantages of deep cleaning the skin without the use of harsh chemicals and also providing anti-aging effects.
Ella Walk-In Bathtubs come in a variety of sizes and designs so they’ll easily fit any bathroom and body type. Wheelchair accessible models are also available which have a specially designed door to make transfer much easier. Ella Walk-In Bathtubs provide a safe and accessible experience for those who may not be able to use a traditional bathtub so that they can be self-reliant and remain living in their own home.
Ella’s Bubbles has built a stellar reputation in the industry. They are well known for their exceptionally safe and therapeutic designs of walk-in bathtubs.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
