Pediatric special needs bathing chairs are devices that help children with physical or cognitive disabilities to bathe safely and comfortably. They are designed to fit in most standard bathtubs or showers, and they provide support and stability for the child’s body and posture. Pediatric special needs bathing chairs can also make bathing more enjoyable and relaxing for the child and the caregiver. There are different types of pediatric special needs bathing chairs, depending on the child’s level of mobility, support, and functionality. Some of the common types are:
- Shower commode chairs: These are chairs that have wheels and a seat with a hole in the middle. They can be used as a shower chair, a commode chair, or a wheelchair. They allow the child to move from one place to another without transferring, and they also enable the child to use the toilet without getting off the chair.
- Bath chairs: These are chairs that have a seat with or without a backrest. They are placed inside the bathtub or shower, and they allow the child to sit down while bathing. Some bath chairs have features such as reclining, tilting, or folding, which can enhance the child’s comfort and positioning.
- Shower trolleys: These are trolleys that have a platform with or without a mattress. They are used to transport the child from the bedroom to the bathroom, and they also serve as a shower bed. They allow the child to lie down while bathing, which can reduce fatigue and stress on the joints and muscles. Some shower trolleys also have features such as height adjustment, side rails, or drainage system, which can optimize the child’s comfort and hygiene.
