The Wave

Hygiene and health go together.

When we make bathing easier, our clients are healthier. The all new Wave system has been thoroughly reimagined to improve bathing and showering – for the client and for the caregiver.

Responding to requests from therapists and caregivers, we widened these new bath chairs to accommodate larger clients. And to protect skin integrity we added generous padding under soft knit fabric.

As well as mounting the bath chair on a tub stand or rolling shower stand we’ve added an ingenious new tub transfer base (available in summer 2017) to completely change the way you transfer and bathe large clients. There’s nothing like it.
