A Tub Transfer Bench Is a Must-Have for Marquette, MI, Residents Caring for a Loved One with Limited Mobility
Bathroom duties can be particularly challenging if you are caring for a loved one with limited mobility. At the Barrier Free Store, we can provide and install a tub transfer bench at your home in Marquette to help make bathing safer, more convenient, and more comfortable for both you and the person you’re caring for.
Options for Every Situation
We offer a variety of durable, easy-to-use products, so no matter what your needs may be, you’ll be able to find a tub transfer bench with the perfect combination of options. We offer:
- Slide-transfer bathing systems – This standard system is configured as a toilet-accessible chair mounted on a waterproof plastic frame. The chair can be slid easily from the commode to the shower and back again and features two swing-away arms for lateral transfers, a tension adjustable backrest, a seat belt, and a slide-out footrest.
- Tiltable slide transfers – Available in adult and children’s sizes, this type of tub transfer bench works the same way as the standard system, but with a reclining lounge chair instead of an upright chair.
- Bath recliners – For those with greater mobility, a bath recliner may be ideal. These devices are positioned inside the shower and allow the occupant to ease into a raised-yet-reclining position while bathing.
- Swivel bath chairs – Bath chairs provide the same functionality as bath recliners except the occupants are in a sitting rather than reclining position.
- Bath-to-bed slide transfers – Providing the most mobility, this tub transfer bench can be rolled up to the bed for easy transfer, then wheeled next to the bathing enclosure so that the recliner can slide easily into the shower.
All of these products are compatible with standard bathing enclosures, eliminating the need for expensive and disruptive bathroom renovations.

We also offer custom shower systems and walk-in tubs for homeowners in Marquette and throughout the entire Upper Peninsula.
