The role of Occupational Therapists in assisting and facilitating fall prevention solutions in the bathroom is critical.
The Tubway bathtub modification method has made this task easy and with minimal administrative tasks required.
This economical option helps people who are elderly, have a disability or are physically limited to maintain their independence in their own home.
Without the need to perform a major modification, there will be no need to relocate to alternative accommodation.
We use the latest technology and machinery which enable us to modify any type of bathtub of any shape.
The modification is implemented in line with the users’ needs, and room can be allocated for a bath board, swivel chair or a transfer bench.
It should be noted that the Tubway bathtub modification system is designed to be as an integral part of the bathtub not an inserted cap, and as such there is no obstruction outside or inside the bathtub when a person is getting into or out of the tub.
This added safety is much needed when fall prevention is a major issue and the aim is to prevent a fall injury.
We work closely with Occupational Therapists to provide feasible and effective solutions.
