The Elevated Bathtub is an innovative solution to a common problem for young and old that makes preparing for freshening up a great deal easier.
The Elevated Bathtub is a very thoughtful bathing experience for those who suffer from limited mobility. I have a parent who has both their knees replaced and suffers from sever arthritis, so getting in or out of a bathtub is kinda risky. This unique bathtub allows the user to step into the bath area on a flat base without any hindrance. Split into two main parts, the tub enclosure can be lifted; and the flat base with a showerhead pillar doubles up as a lifting rail for the tub enclosure.
Elevated Bathtub is a 2012 red dot award: design concept winner.
