More Information on the Splash Defense™ Transfer Bench
BEST SHOWER CHAIR EVER
This chair is what I have been looking for ever since I became disabled! This allows you to stay WARM by keeping the shower curtain inside the tub. It keeps the water inside the tub! Other chairs I would have to sit on the shower curtain or just have the water be outside the tub. My shower is a standard apartment TUB/Shower combo that came with glass doors which were removed.
I suspect the metal from the chair may rub on the tub eventually. Small price for all the wonderfulness. I can change the feet height and the back of the chair to fit my big butt,

Very easy to use and safe.
The strength I feel was great and I had easy way to get in and Out of the tub.
rosemary v. from frankfort, ny
This was perfect. Very safe with no water getting on the floor. Easy to transfer yourself in and out of the tub. I had a total knee Replacement.
Too large for some tubs
Well made Solves a problem of getting water on floor
It’s not adaptable to different widths of tubs

The chair is very helpful
The area of the chair that let's the shower curtain pass through without water leaking out of the shower.
The legs need more adjustment for taller walled showers.

Product meets need with high level of comfort.
Adjustable legs and curtain bypass are best features.
Too wide for standard tub. Must have legs all the way up to allow curtain bypass to rest on side of tub. Must place boards under outside legs to level and add a towel along tub edge to prevent curtain bypass from rubbing side of tub.

Spouse received knee replacement surgery and needs bench for shower in standard tub.
Slot for shower curtain is perfect
The slot for the shower curtain is perfect and makes the bench easy to use. Transferring is easy. The ability to build the bench with the seat either way makes this perfect.
I don’t think there are any weaknesses.
stacey o. from fishers, in
I have Multiple Sclerosis and recently also had back surgery. I needed the bench per my Occupational Therapist.
Great bench for those with limited mobility
I bought this bench specially for the weight limit and the slot that allows the shower curtain to drain inside the tub. Water outside the tub was a big problem before I got this bench. Bench feels very secure when I sit on it.
The only complaint that I have is that the arm on the inside of the shower (right hand side) is bothersome. We simply removed it and it works great.

Best purchase I've made!
The durability and ease of use.
None that I have noticed.
michael r. from wantage, nj (caregiver)
I bought this for my wife because she has difficulty getting in and out of the shower. It makes it easy for her to slide in and out of the shower.
The depth of the seat gives stability
The divider for the split seat isn’t big enough for my bathtub. My bathtub has a wide edge and the bench is almost too small. Can’t use the transfer portion for the same reason
donna s. from oak ridge, tn (caregiver)
I use this bench to help my disabled husband in the bath. Before we got it I was just giving him a sponge bath. It’s been a life saver for me
Perfect answer to my needs.
Keeps water off the bathroom floor making it safer to leave bathtub.

60 year old female with history of spine cancer and huge surgery. Walks with walker short distances. Cannot stand more than several minutes.
It makes showering safe for people who have difficulty...
Pretty well made, height adjustability is sufficient, easy to assemble, reasonably priced, fills a much needed gap with the ability to keep water from running out of the shower like most transfer benches. The U channels were a great idea.
No major weaknesses, however the industrial grip suction cups are hard to release make it a major pain for everybody else that has to use the shower. By the time you get one loose the other is glued to the bathtub floor again.

Easy for my husband to get a shower
I don't have water in the floor any moor.I love the feature that keeps the shower curtain in the tub.
I really don't see one
