    Shower transfer bench advice - Medline/Guardian vs. Drive - durability?

    Hi.

    My Dad (para) needs a new shower transfer bench. No cut outs, padded.

    He last bought one 10 years ago (!). Should have been replaced a long time ago...

    Is anyone using the Medline/Guardian bench or the Drive bench? Looking for cushion durability and stability, primarily.

    Thanks.

    These are links to the two he is looking at.

    No one using these? That's probably a bad sign.... It doesn't look like the Medline/Guardian one is widely sold now. That's the one my Dad bought previously - his OT at rehab chose it 10 years ago.

    How about about the Lumex one, which is sold by AllegroMedical? I saw the nurse linked to it in a very old post. Anyone using this one and could compare it to the Others?

    Mostly looking for cushion durability for skin safety, and stability of the unit in the shower.

    Also, if anyone uses a patch kit to repair cushions for any of these, or buys replacement cushions for any of these, we would be grateful to know. Thanks.

    Medline by far a superior product over drive. Trust me on this one own a dme company been selling these products 20 plus years.

    Appreciate that ... good to know. I appreciate your experience. If this is actually an old Guardian bench, that they have relabled as Medline, would you still say it's better?Any thoughts on Lumex?

    Correct guardian sold that product line to Medline. Same product no real changes and unfortunately I don't sell Lumex. I would definitely stay away from Drive they are the low end of all dme products. That's why the price is so low. Good luck with your search.

    Thanks again.

    So we ordered the same Guardian/Medline bench.

    oops. Correction. It looks like the Medline bench may be hard to obtain. Already failed two attempts to order online.

    Any input on the Lumex or a similar padded, no cutout shower bench to recommend?

    Yes, that is similar. But he needs one without the cut out. Just a plain bench. I know a lot of folks like the cut out, but it isn't good for him. I did look at your website actually! I am happy to support your company, and appreciate your advice.
