Having to remodel your whole bathroom due to a disability is an expensive, labor-intensive project that might not even be possible, depending on if you own your place or not. Showerbuddy enables your to fully take use of your bathroom, without the need for an expensive remodel or construction. Showerbuddy comes in four different models, each suited for different needs and configurations.
SB1 – ShowerBuddy
The SB1 is the original ShowerBuddy model that was designed and engineered in New Zealand. The ShowerBuddy helps alleviate heavy lifting and unnecessary transfers. It also eliminates slip hazards and costly construction while maintaining the privacy of the patient. This unique system allows for the patient to transfer from the toilet to the shower in one easy trip. This model is suited for a standing shower configuration.
SB2 – TubBuddy
The SB2 is the bathtub alternative to the ShowerBuddy. The TubBuddy SB2 is an ergonomic bathing transfer system designed to allow a patient to safely transfer to a bathtub without having to remodel the entire bathroom. This model is also capable of rolling over standard/elongated toilets to be used as a commode. The TubBuddy eliminates unnecessary transfers between toileting and bathing making it comfortable for both patient and caregiver meanwhile reducing costs and maintaining privacy.
SB2T – Tubbuddy with Tilt
The TubBuddy Tilt is nearly the same as the original Tubbuddy, but with one new feature. The unit allows for safe and easy transfer over and out of the bath tub incorporating a tilt option. The tilt option allows the caregiver to relieve pressure for the patient while simultaneously making it easier to bathe the patient. The tilt option alleviates strain on the caregiver by allowing the patient to slide over the bath tub without having to lift their legs.
SB3T – Roll-InBuddy with Tilt
The revolutionary tilt option of the Roll-inBuddy Tilt allows for pressure release as well as a more thorough bathing experience for the patient and easier reach for the caregiver. The Roll-inBuddy tilt incorporates all the same safety features and corrosion resistant materials standard to all Showerbuddy products.
Showerbuddy has also been recognized as the winner of the 2008 Harding Award for product innovation. The award was presented to Showerbuddy at the Canadian Seating & Mobility Conference in Toronto, Canada on September 15, 2008.
