A shower chair and commode is a versatile assistive device that serves dual functions in the bathroom. It combines the features of a shower chair and a commode chair, providing support and convenience for individuals with mobility challenges, seniors, or those who need assistance with personal hygiene.
Key features of a shower chair and commode include:
Dual Functionality: The primary feature of a shower chair and commode is its dual functionality. It can be used as a shower chair for individuals who need to sit while bathing and as a commode chair for toileting purposes.
Water-Resistant Materials: These chairs are typically made of water-resistant materials such as aluminium or stainless steel, ensuring durability and resistance to moisture.
