Bathroom wheelchairs (also known as shower wheelchairs) are designed to make hygiene maintenance easier for those who find it difficult or impossible to make it to the lavatory. These chairs typically feature an opening in the seat -- to allow users to toilet themselves while remaining on the chair -- and rust-resistant frames for use in the shower. Bear in mind that, when transferring your chair into the shower, you will most likely need a caregiver to assist.

Bathroom wheelchairs allow users to roll into the toilet or/and the shower without having to transfer.
Here are some considerations when buying a bathroom wheelchair:
Toilet/Shower - What is the intended function? Will you be using the chair for the toilet only? Or, do you plan to use the chair in the shower too? Shower friendly wheelchairs must be able to stand up to the water.
Doorway size - It is common for bathroom and shower doorways to be narrow. Commode and shower wheelchairs start at 22 inches in overall width - they are often wider.
Home or Travel - We offer a varity of bathroom wheelchairs that breakdown and fold for easy travel.
