The Wave

Bathing system with tub transfer

Hygiene and health go together.

When we make bathing easier, our clients are healthier. The Wave system has been designed to improve bathing and showering – for the client and for the caregiver.

Responding to requests from therapists and caregivers, we widened these bath chairs to accommodate larger clients. And to protect skin integrity we added generous padding under soft knit fabric.

As well as mounting the bath chair on a tub stand or rolling shower stand we’ve added an ingenious tub transfer base to completely change the way you transfer and bathe large clients. There’s nothing like it.
