Slider Bathing System
The Slider is a rolling shower chair and tub frame that eliminates the need for costly bathroom renovations. Until now, caregivers and parents of individuals with special needs have had to make as many as six or more transfers to get a child or adult from a wheelchair to the bathtub or toilet. No more!

The Slider bath chair will easily support a person with mild to more severe levels of physical involvement weighing up to 250 lbs. (114 kg). The Slider bath chair and transfer system would provide exceptional support for individuals with such medical conditions as Spina Bifida (latex free), Muscular Dystrophy, Cerebral Palsy, stroke, heart conditions, and many more.
The Slider rolling bath chair/shower chair consists of a rolling shower chair that interlocks with a removable PVC support frame. When detached from the support frame, the Slider’s rolling chassis can be positioned over a standard toilet commode and then without even one transfer from the seat, can be placed next to the tub, interlocked to the frame, and slid right into the bathtub. It’s as simple and safe as that! For easy access to the person bathing, the rolling chassis can be removed so the caregiver can help with bathing. When bathing is complete, simply reposition the Slider chassis next to the tub, interlock it with the support frame, and slide the bath chair back onto the Slider rolling chassis. Once locked in place, the Slider rolling shower chassis can be rolled over the toilet and out of the bathroom without the need to transfer the person on a wet surface.
Parents, therapists, and caregivers will love this safe, easy-to-use, and especially, cost effective rolling transfer/bathing system. Transfers will be limited, caregivers will reduce back strain and injury, other family members will maintain bathtub/shower/toilet access, and most importantly, bathing will be easier and safer for individuals with special needs. The furniture grade polyvinyl chloride resin (PVC) tubing of the bath chair and the Slider rolling shower chassis are sure to be long lasting. The nature of the material will resist chips, dents, stains, peeling, fading, rust, and even sustain bacterial growth.
The slider works effectively with most existing standard size built-in bathtubs and toilets.
