Tubbuddy SB2: How it works

  • Showering

    When it’s not used for bathing, the TubBuddy is a comfortable day chair, toilet chair, and bedside commode.

    When the user is ready to shower:

    • TubBuddy’s rolling base connects to the elevated tub base.
    • A carer can then simply transfer the user across the bridge over and into the bathtub for showering.
    • The tub base has anti-slip stabilising feet and side stabilisers that grip onto the side of the tub for extra support.
    • After showering is complete, the carer transfers the user out of the bathtub.
    • If needed, TubBuddy’s rolling base/chair can be used as a bedside commode at night times.
  • Toileting

    TubBuddy offers a comfortable toilet aid experience to users:

    • Position the TubBuddy over the toilet. The unit can be height adjusted to suit.
    • Lock TubBuddy down securely with the stable locking caster wheels.
    • Non-corrosive, water-resistant materials make TubBuddy easy to clean for carers.
    • TubBuddy comes with a complete commode system for use away from the home bathroom toilet.

The TubBuddy SB2: Transfer System

Many individuals with mobility needs have a shower/bath combo at home. Maneuvering over the edge of a bathtub comes with its challenges, even with the aid of a carer. Many homeowners will opt for bathroom modifications to make accessing a shower bath easier. Sometimes entire units are removed and replaced with permanent accessibility fixtures, which can be expensive.

The TubBuddy SB2 transfer system from Showerrbuddy is designed to allow safe and simple access to a shower bath with the help of a carer – without any permanent changes to fixtures necessary. TubBuddy consists of a comfortable chair and elevated bridge, capable of clearing most regular bathtub sides. TubBuddy is a full-featured raised toilet chair, eliminating extra transfer between toilet and showering.

TubBuddy reduces costs, improves hygiene and saves time. Mobility impairment no longer requires bathroom remodeling.
