Bariatric shower commode chairs are devices that help people who weigh more than 300 pounds to bathe and toilet safely and comfortably. They are designed to fit in most standard showers or bathtubs, and they provide support and stability for the user’s body and posture. Bariatric shower commode chairs can also make bathing and toileting more enjoyable and relaxing for the user and the caregiver. A bariatric shower commode chair consists of a frame, a seat, a backrest, and a bucket or a pan. The frame is usually made of metal or plastic, and it has four wheels that can be locked or unlocked to prevent unwanted movement or facilitate smooth transfer. The seat has a hole or a removable section in the middle, which allows the user to sit on the chair and use the bucket or the pan underneath. The bucket or the pan can be easily removed and emptied after each use. Some bariatric shower commode chairs also have additional features such as armrests, handles, brakes, or handrails.
