Myco Swivel Bather Adjustable Width

The Myco Adjustable Width Swivel Bather is a turning bath seat that allows easy transfer over the bath. The user sits on the seat from the side of the bath and then swivels over the bath for a wash or shower. The comfortable seat provides back and arm support and is ideal for people who feel insecure on a bath board.

The Myco Adjustable Width Swivel Bather rests on any standard bath. No fixtures or fittings are required and it is easily removed so that others can use the bath.

The Myco Adjustable Width Swivel Bather® has two parts; a base frame that rests on the bath and a seat unit that rotates on the base. The two parts separate easily for handling and storage. Each part weighs 3.2kg. The Myco Swivel Bather is adjustable from 26″ to 30″ to fit a range of domestic baths.

The seating unit has a plastic seat which is easy to clean and drainage holes sized for safety. The base frame has plastic ends and positioning screws to prevent movement.

The locking lever is located on the right hand side of the seat unit and locks in both the transfer and bathing positions. Seats with a left hand locking lever can be manufactured to order.

Critical turning components (the base plate and swivel pin) are stainless steel on all models, which ensures long-term reliability without the need for servicing or lubrication.

The base frame can easily be adjusted to fit a range of bath widths by turning the grey arm handles. This makes it the ideal product for OT’s to use for home assessments and also for equipment stores where one product will suit most bath widths.

For the home user who uses the Swivel Bather when traveling – the Myco Adjustable Width Swivel Bather will provide the adaptability required to fit other baths including most hotel baths.

Another advantage of the adjustable width bather is that the gap between the seat and the bath edge can be reduced. The seat can be set closer to the front edge of the bath by shortening the arms resting on the front edge of the bath and lengthening the arms resting on the side nearest the wall.

Easy to adjust:

The standard models are all constructed using epoxy coated mild steel and are suitable for users weighing up to 120Kg.

NOTE: A Stainless Steel Myco Heavy Duty Swivel Bather is now available, for users up to 160kg.

The Myco Adjustable Width Swivel Bather has a base frame which fits over the bath and a seating unit which rotates on the base. The two parts separate easily – each part weighs about 3.2Kg.

The grey handles of the base frame can be turned to increase or decrease the width of the base. This allows the base width to be varied from 26″ to 30″ (660 – 760mm) to cover most bath sizes.

Tubing is epoxy coated mild steel. All other metal components are stainless steel. In particular the critical turning components, the base plate and the swivel pin, are stainless steel and no servicing or lubrication is required.

The seating unit has an easy to clean plastic seat with drainage holes sized for safety.

The base frame has non-slip plastic ends which rest on the bath sides. Two positioning screws on either side also help to prevent movement.

The locking lever is on the right hand side – left hand locking is available.

The width of the base can be adjusted from 26″ (660mm) to 30″ (760mm).

Step 2 – Fitting the base frame over the bath

Rest the base frame securely on the bath. At least 1¼ inch (30mm) of each arm must rest on the sides of the bath. Turn the positioning screws on both sides until the black rubber ends are just touching the sides of the bath.

Step 3 – Fitting the seat

Place the seat on the base frame. The socket under the seat locates over the swivel pin of the base frame. Ensure that the seat rotates freely. Lock the seat by pushing the black knob on the locking lever gently down until the lock locates in the slots in the base frame.
