Transfer benches are great for anyone who has a hard time getting in out of the bathtub. They are positioned so that they are both inside and outside of the bathtub at the same time. One half of the transfer bench is outside of the bathtub and the other half is inside the bathtub. They have suction cup feet to prevent the transfer bench from moving. They come with options such as padded or non padded seats, locking mechanisms, and even with or without commodes. People recovering from surgeries such as total knee replacements and other orthopedic surgeries greatly benefit from the use of transfer benches by making it easier to complete activities of daily living such as bathing. rtl12031kdrlife
