The Bath Buddy is in inflatable
bath lift designed to lower you to the very bottom of your bath.
With a 1 year
manufacturing warranty, the cushion is made out of Polyurethane (robust
plastic) and the maximum weight limit is 20 stone.
There are no batteries
to charge up or replace and it is lightweight so it is portable so can be used
at home / holiday home etc.
It requires no
installation or special set up and is ready to use straight away - you receive
the motor, the hand control and the cushion (the cushion has 4 suckers at the
bottom that stick to the bath & the hose is welded to the cushion)
The motor blows up the
cushion - the motor should be positioned outside of the bathroom e.g. in the
hall and requires mains power supply
The hand control cable
is not electrical, it is an air cable and the air runs through the hand control
and blows air through to the motor
You should position
the cushion in the bath first then add water, when sat on the inflatable
cushion which has built in back support, you press ‘down' on the soft touch
waterproof hand control and the cushion deflates fully to gently lower the user
right to the bottom of the bath taking approximately 50 seconds. It deflates
quicker when you are sat on the cushion as the weight pushes it down as it
releases the valve for air to escape.
When finished in the
bath, press the ‘up' button on the hand control to inflate the cushion and the
user will be gently raised up to the top of the bath on the inflating cushion,
it will automatically turn off when it is fully inflated, you can then get out
of the bath
Once out of the bath,
the quickest way to deflate the cushion is to disconnect the hose from the
motor, this will then take approximately 10 minutes to deflate. You can press
the down button on the hand control but this will take approximately. 30
minutes to deflate
To remove the cushion out of the bath after use,
this should be done by carefully lifting the tabs on the suckers to unstick the
suckers from the bath surface.
