Now that summer is over, the nights are getting longer, the days are getting shorter and the wind is getting colder all the time. Before you know it, it will be too cold to step outside without gloves, coat and scarf. With that in mind, we all know that one of the most effective ways to relax after a long, cold day is with a nice hot bath.
However, the cold can make any pre-existing mobility issues all the worse, which can make a hot bath almost impossible to enjoy, particularly if you don’t have any mobility accessories, such as bath lifts, in place in your bathroom.
How Will Bath Lifts Help Me To Stay Warm?
Everybody knows that a hot bath is one of the most pleasurable activities that one can enjoy at the end of a long day, particularly in the cold weather. However, you might not know that soaking yourself in warm water is one of the oldest forms of medicine. Research has actually shown that warm water works wonders on all kinds of issues, particularly for muscular and skeletal mobility issues, which can include anything from arthritis to lower back or limb pain.
There is a difference between warm and being too hot. In fact, water that is too hot has been proven to put stress on the heart and can actually exacerbate mobility issues.
Lifts for the bathroom will gently lower you in to the warm water of the bath, allowing you to more completely submerge yourself than a bath seat might do, whilst still offering high levels of comfort.
But I Can’t Get Comfortable In The Bath
It is a common issue for the elderly and those with mobility issues to be unable to easily enter, or comfortably sit, in a bath. The very best in intelligently designed bath lifts can help. They are a hassle-free way to enter and exit the bathtub, and can actually be much more comfortable than sitting on the hard surface of the bath itself.
There are a range of other products which can also help you to improve your comfort in the bath. These can include rails, bath steps and non-slip stickers to ensure that you are completely safe in the wet, slippery environment of the bathroom.
