Shower Curtain with TubBench

Shower Curtain with TubBench

Shower Curtain with TubBench – Using a bathtub transfer bench is a safe way to get in and out of the bathtub but as a result, it can make a mess and be dangerous when water from the shower splashes out on the floor.

In this quick tip video, Cindy, PT with Adaptive Equipment Corner shows us how to use an inexpensive shower curtain to decrease the amount of water on the floor when using a bathtub transfer bench.

Use an inexpensive shower curtain

By cutting the shower curtain in a “v” it will allow the user of the tub bench to feed the flap into the slit in the seat and allow the outer flaps to hang inward around the seat. Thereby keeping most of the water in the tub. Likewise, non-transfer bench users can clip the pieces together consequently, keeping water inside the tub.

Caution:

This of course will not prevent all water from splashing on the floor.  Clients and their family members should place a towel on the floor outside of the tub bench to catch any water that splashes on the floor.
