If you struggle with your mobility, whether through age, illness or injury, a bathing seat can provide great comfort and stability when taking a bath or shower.
Feeling safe when you bathe is very important, which is why our bathrooms ensure you have the best possible bathing experience. While there are many things to look out for when selecting the right bath or shower, it is always a good idea to keep bathing seats in mind – there can be safety issues when using unsuitable seating solutions or none at all.
All of the bathing seats at Mobility Plus have been designed to meet a variety of needs, and so since it can be daunting to figure out which option is best based on your needs, the bathroom size and layout, here we introduce a few options so you can make the right choice for you.
Walk-in baths seats
Our stylish low entry walk-in baths all come with a low-level side door, removing any uneasiness you might feel when stepping in or out of the bath. Although all walk-in baths offer the same fundamental features, there are various styles, sizes and options available.
For example, the Windermere walk-in bath with power seat has a comfortable powered lifting seat. Specially designed for those with disabilities or mobility restrictions affecting leg movement, the seat will lower you down and raise you back up again – all at the touch of a button – so you can enjoy safe and independent bathing.
The Derwent deep soak walk-in bath and Hampton walk-in baths both have an integrated seat with a contoured back. The comfortable seat takes the pressure off your back and offers an ideal solution for those who are unable to raise from a traditional full-length bath. If you can lower and raise yourself to and from a seated position, these baths are ideal, especially for those who may have weaker core strength.
Walk-in shower seats
A fold-up shower seat could be an ideal addition to your shower. If you are someone who struggles to stand for a long time or are worried about slipping. All of our walk-in shower installations can come with a comfortable folding seat, available in a number of styles.
Our compact fold-up seat is ideal if you have limited space in your bathroom. Simply fold it away when not in use. The cushioned seat is easy to clean and allows the water to drain away quickly.
We also offer a fold-up seat with arms and a back for extra support. If you require assistance getting up from a seated position, the arms may be more suitable for you. A grab rail can always be positioned in the shower area if additional support is required.
Another option in our bathing seat range is our fold-up wooden seat. The seat itself is made from ecologically friendly rubberwood, and the framework and legs are rustproof stainless steel. The height is adjustable, ranging from 390mm to 640mm and suitable for users up to 40 stone/254kg in weight, so most users can use it comfortably.
Our free-standing shower stool is also height adjustable and can be moved anywhere in the room. This is not just a great solution for your home due to the adjustable height, but it also allows more freedom and mobility in and around the bathroom.

We donate £100 to Cancer Research UK for every bathroom we sell. Funding is essential for the organisation to continue its lifesaving work, supporting scientists and doctors to beat cancer.
