4 Benefits Of Walk-In Tubs

If you or a loved one have impaired mobility, staying clean can be difficult. A mobility-impaired person may need help getting in and out of a tub or moving about in a shower, which isn’t ideal for anyone involved. A walk-in tub has many benefits, and it might be the right choice for you.


It’s common to hear about older friends and relatives slipping in the shower or falling while trying to traverse the lip of the tub. Walk-in bathtubs are designed for safety, with swinging doors to avoid a high threshold for you to step over and a comfortable seat that’s easy to rise from. Other customizable safety features include anti-slip floors and handrails.


Most walk-in tubs come with hydrotherapy jets, which can be used for more than just a spa experience. Hydrotherapeutic jets can relieve symptoms associated with poor circulation, muscle tightness, arthritis, fibromyalgia and more. As a result, walk-in bathtubs can make it easier to move around outside the tub as well as inside it.


If you’re considering a shower to tub conversion, a walk-in tub might seem pricey. However, the cost is worth the independence that mobility-impaired individuals gain by being able to bathe on their own.

Safely taking care of personal hygiene is a major part of being able to live without assistance, and a walk-in tub may be able to help you or a loved one live independently for longer. Additionally, they can help you avoid the medical cost of falls and slips.


When considering a walk-in tub as part of your bathroom remodel, style might be an important factor for you. Luckily, walk-in tubs can be customized to fit all of your needs. Legacy Bath & Kitchen offers choices of bubble jets, handrails, seating, showerheads and more, all with design options to make your walk-in tub fit the style of your bathroom. Walk-in baths can be made with showers, too, so you don’t have to give up your shower completely.
