Reversible L-Shaped Tub/Shower Transfer Seats

Promote the independence and safety of your patients with
these versatile, yet comfortable shower seats

by Seachrome

Proudly made in the USA

A single shower seat style won't always work for everyone. Those who have suffered from stroke or hemiplegia, or anyone who is recovering from an injury or surgery that impacts only one side of the body (such as a broken hip or knee surgery) often have limited strength and mobility on the affected side, and transferring to the shower or tub can be difficult - especially if transfer aids are not installed on the proper side. This reversible L-shaped seat is the perfect solution for nursing homes, assisted living facilities, group homes or other medical facilities where a variety of people are using the same shower facilities.

Simply unbolt the seat surface, flip it over, and re-fasten it to the frame to quickly and easily change from a left-hand to right-hand L-shape as needed. The larger L-shaped surface offers plenty of space to transfer and rest on while showering, and the ability to reverse the orientation helps you to better meet the needs of different patients without cluttering your shower room with a bunch of portable seats that simply get in the way when not being used. Reduce the risk of injury to your patients and loved ones from trying to transfer over an "in the way" arm of an incorrectly oriented shower seat, and purchase one of these easy-to-use, durable reversible seats today.

Reversible L-Shaped Shower Transfer Seats

Help your loved ones or patients to shower more safely with these comfortable L-shaped transfer seats. Many stroke victims, disabled persons, or those recovering from injury or surgery may not have the strength or mobility to stand for the time it takes to shower, and it can be embarrassing to have to ask for assistance with personal hygiene. An incorrectly oriented shower seat that doesn't accommodate the person's stronger side only tends to make transferring to the tub or shower worse - and more dangerous for both the individual and the caregiver assisting them. These durable shower seats have reversible tops to accommodate a range of individual needs, and can help to maintain the dignity and independence of your loved one or patient by allowing them to transfer and shower safely with minimal or no assistance.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. "Who can benefit from these seats?"
A. The great thing about these seats is that just about everyone can benefit from having a shower or bathtub seat. However, there are many who specifically require assistance entering or exiting the shower and/or while bathing. Elderly persons, those with physically debilitating diseases like Parkinson's or arthritis, and those with cognitive or neurological disorders like Alzheimer's/dementia may be prone to falls or have difficulty standing. A shower seat can offer a much needed respite from standing too long, and provide the opportunity to bathe safely and independently. Those with physical disabilities, who have suffered stroke, or for other reasons experience limited mobility can also greatly benefit from these seats as they may be able to transfer and shower without assistance, affording them greater privacy and preserving their independence. Even individuals without a chronic condition, such as someone recovering from a severe injury or surgery, or who are in physical rehabilitation can find comfort in safe and easy bathing with one of these wonderful seats.

In short, anyone who requires assistance with activities of daily living can spend less time trying to uncomfortably manage a bath or shower and more time relaxing and enjoying their bathing. Having a sturdy, reliable surface to rest on while showering or bathing greatly reduces the risk of injury, promotes comfort and independence, and helps to maintain a person's privacy and dignity while attending to personal hygiene.

Q. "What is 'phenolic'?"
A. Phenolic is a hard, dense, resin material that is light weight, and incredibly strong. This nonporous material does not splinter or require oiling and will not support the growth of bacteria. It is available in either a White or Teak (wood-grain) surface finish.

Q. "What is the maximum weight capacity for these seats?"
A. When properly installed, all Seachrome shower seats have been designed and manufactured to support loads exceeding the downward pull requirements for Federal specifications FHA, VA, HUD, hospital codes, and private construction. Reversible L-Shaped shower transfer seats are rated for 250 lbs. maximum weight. Reversible L-Shaped shower transfer seats WITH swing down legs are rated for 900 lbs. maximum weight. The actual "in use" load bearing capacity of any shower seat, however, will be limited by the strength of its mounting surface and installation hardware. Seachrome recommends that shower seats be installed using 2" minimum thickness "in wall" solid wood backing material with #10 x 2" stainless steel, phillips-head, sheet metal screws, or using a wall embedded, minimum 12 ga. (2.8mm) steel anchor plate with #10 x 24 stainless steel machine screws. Please contact the factory for further mounting recommendations. Under no circumstances should any shower seat be mounted to drywall, sheet rock, plaster, fiberglass, acrylic or other similar "hollow" wall surfaces without appropriate wood or steel backing material.

Q. "How do I 'reverse' the seat?"
A. The stainless steel frame for these seats is designed so that all you have to do is unbolt the seat top from the frame, flip it over, and re-bolt it to the frame whenever you want to reverse the orientation. The surface is finished on both sides and the bolt tops sit below the screw holes, ensuring a comfortable seat regardless of orientation. No special tools are required, although you may wish to keep a wrench handy for individuals who might have trouble tightening the nuts sufficiently.


Please note: While we strive to ensure every product we label as "Made in the USA" really is 100% made in the USA, it is also important to understand that sometimes manufacturers make changes to their products, or for various reasons may receive components or materials that they would normally purchase domestically from an overseas supplier - and they don't necessarily let distributors (like us!) know that they've changed something about the product or where it is manufactured.

If you receive a product that PlumbingSupply.com® says is "Made in the USA" and the product states it was manufactured elsewhere, please contact us. We will happily replace or refund your purchase to your satisfaction.
