Product Spotlight : Bellavita and AquaJoy Premier Plus Bathlift

Bellavita

Bellavita Bathlift

I’d like to highlight and describe two of the best reviewed products we sell here at Spinlife, the Bellavita and Aquajoy Premier Plus Bathlift from Drive Medical.

Easy to use, simple to operate, lightweight and portable a bathlift allows folks to “get down in the water and soak in the tub” and get back out with the push of a button.

No wonder they are so popular!

It’s a common problem, and one not to be embarrassed about, when you are no longer able to safely get down in your bathtub and then get back out without a serious issue. After all, tubs are usually low-sitting at floor level in the home. Once they are filled with nice warm, sudsy water they are extremely slippery, and many times there is nothing to hold onto to steady yourself as you step over the side one leg at a time. Once you do get seated in the water for that relaxing soak, you have to somehow get back up to your feet and climb out- which is often where the trouble really begins.

Don’t risk a fall, consider a bath tub lift.

The Bellavita bathlift has the greatest travel range high to low in the category. It lowers to within 2.3 inches of the tub floor and raises to a height of 18.8 inches, so it is great for deeper tubs. The rectangular base is held to the floor of the tub with four large suction cups for stability. The lift is constructed of sturdy high-impact plastic and is easy to clean and disinfect. Two transfer flaps span from each side of the lift, resting on the tub side so you can sit on the side of the tuba and slide over onto the Bellavita bathlift safely. Once you are seated, simply use the sealed, battery powered hand control to lower yourself into the water, and recline the backrest to relax. The weight capacity of the Bellavita is 300 lbs., and the seat itself is 13.7 inches wide (not counting the side flaps).Aqua Joy Bathlift

If you’d like something a bit bigger, consider the Aquajoy Premier Plus bathlift. It has all the great features of the Bellavita, but carries a 375 lb. weight capacity. The lift/lower range is from 3.1” to 18.1 inches and the seat is 15.3 inches wide without the side flaps.

Both models come with a waterproof rechargeable hand control, charger and large suction cups to hold them in place. The price also includes a non-slip washable cover for the seat and backrest. Since they are held in place with suction cups, they must be used in tubs with smooth floors only. Low battery safety switches insure that the lifts have enough power to lower and lift you back out.

Jazzy Air Eye-Level Social Mobility

Jazzy Air Elevated

At home, those upper cabinets, stove-tops, sinks and bookshelves that have been just out of reach are now accessible. Transfers to higher beds, stools, into your Truck or SUV are accomplished with ease due to the full 10 inches of vertical rise in the Jazzy Air ®. At work, eye-level technology allows you to be seated at your workbench, counter-top or bar-height table interacting face to face with those around you.

Even more importantly it’s social mobility.

Traveling forward with the seat elevated allows you to walk and converse with a friend eye-to-eye. Feel confident in crowds, up where you need to be – looking at, not up to others. Shopping takes on a different dimension when you can see, touch and reach the displays from your new point of view!

Technically, Pride has thought of everything in this new product. The Jazzy Air ® is standard with a weight capacity of 300 lbs., and a top speed of 4 mph (with the seat down). Mid-wheel 6 Drive Design and 10 inch flat free tires give it a tight turning radius of 22.5 inches for great maneuverability. Patented, locking Active-Trac suspension for enhanced performance and maximum stability, and bright LED marker lights for safety. Travel range is up to 15.29 miles per charge with the standard U-1 batteries, and upgraded 40AH batteries are available to extend that range to 18.4 miles on a charge. The contoured high-back, reclining sport seat is available in 16”, 18” and 20” wide.

Product Spotlight: Pride Infinite Position Lift Chairs

Our customers frequently ask for guidance when it comes to purchasing a lift chair, particularly….

“What in the world does infinite position mean and why do I need that?!”

 

First, let me explain what it means. Infinite position chairs are electrically controlled with a wired remote hand control that lifts and reclines them with no effort on your part, save for the pushing of a button. What sets Infinite Position Chairs apart from 2 or 3 position lift chairs is the fact that they have two separate motors that individually control the backrest from the seat and footrest portion of the chair. The hand control has additional buttons allowing you to change the angle of the backrest up and down, and independently change the position of the seat and footrest using different buttons on the hand control. This can be really helpful in mitigating a number of physical issues, and allow for you maximum comfort when relaxing since you can really “fine-tune” the position of your chair.

Four steps to your best custom power chair

Learn about Power Wheelchairs at SpinLife!

Let’s take a step by step approach to help choose the best custom Power wheelchair

Step One

What is your height when standing, and your weight? To get the best service out of your Power wheelchair, your size and its capabilities must match. Generally standard Power wheelchairs are rated for up to 300 lbs. Heavy Duty power wheelchairs increase the weight rating by increasing the size of the powerbase itself, the strength of the motors and other materials that make up the chair. Pick a chair rated at least 10% over your actual weight.

Measure across your lap to see how wide a seat you will need, stay as narrow as possible for better maneuverability. If you are tall or have long legs, you will need a deeper seat than standard.

Step Two

Where will the chair be used most often? Inside, outside or both? The object is of course, to provide the maximum independence for the user. If we are to use a chair outside over rougher terrain here are a few models of chairs which will be much better.
