The 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 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 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 Standard Swivel Bather is 28″ wide.
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.
