Thread: Shower chair! Help I am Tiny!

  1. #11
    I have a friend in BC who owns a DME Store. He has his benches and chairs custommade by a guy up there. I'm sure he could be of help. Great qualioty and many versions. His specialty is custim sizes.

    I live in the States and do business thru him so it wouldn't be a problem. He's at Advanced Mobility in Vancouver BC, Canada

    Here's Dave's info. Give him my name.

    There are plenty of shower chairs for children all the way down to infant size. I'm sure if you are a "child sized" adult, one of them will work.

    try here:

    Do you need a just shower chair or a shower/commode chair? Also, do you need one with large wheels so you can maneuver it yourself or will your Mom be assisting you? I find the E&J shower commode chair works best for me. Most other chairs have a slot in the front part of the seat and my legs tend to slip through them.

    So i was thinking a smaller shower chair that's made for kids will be more appropriate for me.

    What do you think? Are there any such chair available?
    Megha,

    Are you able to transfer from your chair? I use a long shower bench with a very sturdy and comfortable back. I am able to use if alone, transfer back and forth to shower. Works great for me.

    I am unable to transfer myself, but can maneuver the chair myself.

    I also don't think I would need a chair that can go on the commode because I sit on it without a problem. A normal chair waterproof chair will be perfect!

    The E&J shower chair can be had with a solid vinyl seat (no donut hole):

    I'm assuming you transfer from your everyday chair to the toilet, back to your chair, then to a shower bench/chair, yes? Or do you have a roll in shower?

    Thanks. But these chairs are quite expensive Will continue my search.

    I transfer from my chair to the toilet and use a bench for the shower. I was thinking that it would be a good idea to maneuver myself around my bathroom, which is quite big.

    Megha,

    Just approximately, what is your budget for a shower chair? Keep in mind that shipping to India from the US can be quite expensive by itself. There are numerous manufacturers in China, however, I am not familiar with their system of distribution outside of the US.
