Bath cushions are like bath lifts that can be inflated to help people with restricted mobility or physical disabilities to get into and out of the bath tubs.
Bath cushions can also be used for medical purposes especially for therapeutic baths to ease bed sores and muscle tension for patients who are bed ridden. The procedure of lowering and rising out of the bath tub is achieved by deflation and inflation of the bath cushion.
A water proof hand control is pressed to facilitate inflation of the cushion; this makes the cushion to rise up so that the individual can get into it. The cushion is then deflated to lower the individual into the bath tub.
The bath cushions are made to fit well into the tub and are made lighter to facilitate easy movement, this can be used even though the individual changes destination.
The cushions require no expertise especially during installation hence can be effective for hygienic practices as it can be used by individuals who share a bathroom.
The bathing cushion can be powered by batteries and some contain battery level indicators that can indicate the level or when the battery is low. For the bath cushion to be lowered, the batteries must indicate enough power to raise it up, if there is no power, the cushion rejects inflation.
