In terms of stability, The Archimedes Bath Lift is the next step up from our Mangar Bathing Cushion as it provides you with extra back support, almost like sitting in a chair.
This additional back support allows you to experience the comfort and stability you need, at the same time as making sure there is plenty of legroom for you to relax and take weight off your joints.
Benefits of the Archimedes Bath Lift. The Archimedes Bath Lift is a safe, stable and reassuring aid that allows you to lie or sit 7cms from the bottom of the bath, providing a dignified and relaxing bathing experience.
The lift needs no expensive bathroom alterations and can be removed when it’s not in use, making it a great, affordable alternative to a fully-fitted walk-in bath.
Who can use it? The Archimedes Bath Lift is an ideal solution for home settings where a dignified, comfortable and relaxing bathing experience is needed. It is the ideal bathing aid for the elderly and those with limited mobility.
If a supporting carer is required to help operate they can easily use the hand control to lower and raise the patient into the bath, with no additional cables needed.
