Senior and Handicap Benefits in Portable Tubs

correcting myths walk-in bathtubs

For many seniors or people with disabilities, bathroom injuries are some of the largest concerns in daily life. Balance and coordination are often some of the things we lose as we reach our later years, and it’s difficult for many seniors or people with handicaps to perform daily cleaning and basic bathroom functions without a serious risk of falling or other injury.

At Heavenly Walk-In Tubs, we’re here to help. Our portable bathtubs are perfect for seniors or anyone movement or balance issues, and our bathtubs hold many specific benefits for disabled people as well. What are some of these benefits? Let’s have a look.

Ease of Entry

Rather than a raised, possibly slippery entryway into a shower or bathtub, a walk-in bathtub has a convenient and easy-to-use door. The portable tub can be wheeled right into a bedroom or any location necessary – our Quick Connect Box at Heavenly Walk-In Tubs allows you to connect easily to water and drain lines from anywhere.

Using a portable bathtub couldn’t be easier, too. Filling and draining are routine and simple, and there are no confusing details to know about. Cleaning may have been a source of stress for you or a loved one, but now it’s a breeze.


Staying safe from accidents is paramount for seniors or disabled people, and removing many of the unsafe elements of a typical shower or bathtub goes a long way. Portable tubs have slip-resistant floors and padding for additional comfort, plus handrails and a doorway that’s easy to use and lock in place.


Not only are there practical benefits to a walk-in bathtub, there are potential therapeutic benefits as well. Hydrotherapy does wonders for pain relief and general comfort for people of all ages, and our products at Heavenly Walk-In Tubs contain a minimum of 10 water massage jets.


In many situations, installing a portable tub can also save major cost. Many seniors or people with disabilities are forced into a costly bathroom renovation to remove their risk of injury, but a portable tub nips that issue in the bud for many people. Before you look into expensive remodeling, consider whether a portable tub might remove many of the worst issues for you or a loved one.
