“Your Companion To Independence”. This product encompasses freedom from anxiety, worry, and fear of the shower experience. It offers the liberation of comfortably bathing yourself in privacy. There is no longer any hesitation involved in the decision to take a rejuvenating and uplifting shower. Maybe days, even weeks have gone by without indulging in the experience that many people take for granted. Now is the opportunity to regain your independence with a safe and secure product that is durable, sterile, and fully customizable. Most importantly this product can be assembled in less than 20 minutes with no tools required and without the expense or hassle of a total remodel. There are a dozen different models ranging from pediatric to bariatric that cater to individual needs. Take your chair to new levels with Showerbuddy!

The ShowerBuddy SB1 shower transfer system will turn your existing shower tray into an accessible shower tray that allows you to enjoy showering again without the excessive cost, delay and stress of a full bathroom remodel.

The ShowerBuddy SB1 alleviates heavy lifting and multiple transfers for toileting and showering. This chair is separated into three sections; rolling base (shower chair), bridge and shower base. The rolling base rolls around the house like a wheelchair allowing patient to easily transfer and then roll right over a toilet (certain toilets). Once completed with toileting, the rolling base can connect to the bridge and then onto the shower base allowing the chair to slide into the shower. Once inside the shower, the bridge disconnects and the shower base turns allowing the user to face the shower controls.

        Frequently Asked Questions

        What are the benefits of using Showerbuddy products?

        Showerbuddy shower/bath transfer systems convert your existing bathroom into an accessible one for a fraction of a remodel cost. Not only do they save you thousands of dollars, they also reduce manual handling by employing only a single transfer in the whole showering process. Showerbuddy chairs lessen the risk of strain and other injuries to both caregiver and user. They promote user well-being by offering some sense of privacy and even independence in other cases.

        Will ShowerBuddy fit in my bathroom?

        Showerbuddy products are designed to fit most standard bathrooms. Please refer to the Bathroom Measurement Guide found on the Downloads section.

        Can I assemble a ShowerBuddy myself?

        All Showerbuddy products boast a tool-free assembly and come with detailed installation instructions, although the majority of assembly work is already done for you in factory controlled conditions. You can install the product yourself if you wish, however, we suggest that an authorized Showerbuddy dealer assemble and install the product on your behalf.

        Does the ShowerBuddy recline or tilt?

        Tilt versus recline is an old debate that has re-emerged as new products, theory, and clinicians have entered the field of positioning. A brief explanation of each follows:

        A tilt system provides a change of orientation and thus redistributes pressure from one area (e.g., the buttocks and posterior thighs) to another area (e.g., the posterior trunk and head) and maintains physical angles at the hips, knees, and ankles.

        Recline systems provide a change in orientation by opening the seat-to-back angle and, in combination with elevating legrests, open the knee angle as well.

        There are two Showerbuddy models which offer the tilt function - TubBuddy with Tilt (SB2T) and Roll-In Buddy with Tilt (SB3T). There are no Showerbuddy units that offer the recline function.

        Does Medicare or Medicaid pay for ShowerBuddy?

        In the USA. Medicare does not cover most showering aids including Showerbuddy products. However, Showerbuddy products may be covered by Medicaid depending on the State in which you reside. Showerbuddy products may also be covered by some private health insurance.
