ShowerBuddy SB2T - Tub Buddy with Tilt (Open Box)

The TubBuddy with Tilt (SB2T) transfer system will transform your existing bathtub or curbed shower into an accessible, barrier-free bathroom in minutes. This chair allows the user to enjoy showering again without the high cost, delay, and stress of a complete bathroom remodel. The TubBuddy SB2T alleviates multiple transfers and heavy lifting. The SB2T is composed of three sections: rolling base (shower chair), bridge, and tub base. The rolling base can double as a bedside commode. It also rolls around the house like a wheelchair, allowing users easy transfer. Once in the bathroom, the SB2T can roll over most toilets to be used as an over-toilet commode. When toileting is complete, the rolling base and shower base are connected using the bridge, allowing the chair to slide in a tilted position with legs raised and ready to move over the tub. The 30-degree infinite tilt can also be used for pressure relief, increased comfort, and easy-reach bathing. This feature is unique to SB2T and to the marketplace, and it cannot be found on any other shower transfer system. Once over the tub/shower, the rolling base and bridge can be disconnected and removed so that the shower curtain can be closed for privacy or allow the caregiver space to move closer to the patient. A custom bridge may be required if the toilet is too close or too far from the tub. The SB2T features a secondary safety mechanism to prevent the chair from sliding off the tracks and causing injury. The SB2T chair comes equipped with a standard front-opening cushion, neck rest, swing-away and removable footrests with calf strap, flip-back/lockable and removable armrests, 5" lockable casters, a removable commode bucket with lid, chest belt, lap belt, and height adjustability. The TubBuddy with Tilt (SB2T) is a caregiver-assisted product; it is not intended for independent use.
The SB2T weighs 66.62 lbs with a weight capacity of 350 lbs..
SB and Israel provided a great deal of help in solving the bathing needs of my wife. Israel was extremely patient and supportive of my finding a great solution for us.
This shower chair works well and we are happy with it for the most part. The seat is however is uncomfortable and the fold down foot rest is also uncomfortable. It should be longer so your toes do not hang off the end. it also needs padding on the foot rest.
Works well, but very expensive for what you are getting.
This is a great piece of equipment. Definitely worth the money and the best part is we don't need to remodel our shower. After months of sponge baths, this is going to change Mary's life.
It took a while to put the Showerbuddy together. But once it was, it worked very well. I liked the fact that the chair can be rotated once it's locked into the shower. Another good feature is the bridge can be moved out of the way until the chair is ready to come out. Makes washing the patient easier. BUT remember to remove the collection bucket that's made for urine and/or feces. If you don't, it fills up with water that spills all over the place!
