WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT A BATH LIFT?
HOW DOES A BATH LIFT WORK?
The bath lift has a battery that needs to be recharged periodically. It operates with a simple hand control. The great benefit is that the BATH LIFT will lower you into the tub and help raise you up again! We sell the Drive Aqua Joy and Bellavita models as well as the Lumex “Splash” Bath Lift. When purchasing your bath lift you want to look for:
AMPLE WEIGHT CAPACITY
SAFETY and SIMPLICITY OF CLEANING
MINIMUM 17” RISING ABILITY
LOWERING CAPACITY TO UNDER 3” ABOVE TUB BOTTOM
WILL FIT EASILY INTO YOUR TUB
SLIP RESISTANT and WELL CONSTRUCTED
If you do not need a reclining back or swivel seat these are available on the pricier Aqua Joy Premium Plus which is a great Bath Lift. For a swivel seat we like the “Bellavita with swivel transfer seat combo.”
If you don’t need these features ….
Consider the “Splash” Bath lift by Lumex
The Splash bath lift offers exceptional value at a great price.

Splash Bath Lift is the lightest battery-powered bath lift available. The suction cup feet have easy release tabs for releasing the suction cup from the tub floor.

Rechargeable Battery – Hand Control System: recharges in about 4 hours. When the battery has been fully charged, the red light on the charger box turns to a constant green light, which indicates the battery is ready for use. We recommend charging the battery after each bath whenever possible and leaving it on charge until your next bath. The battery cannot be overcharged. A typical charge last 7-10 days.
