Saw an alternative at the Building Show in Florida last year -- it was a
"bath seat" with a ceiling mounted hoist and rail that could raise, move and
lower someone into an existing tub. It was probably about the same price;
but lots easier to install. I don't remember the brand, but the same company
had a system for getting people into and out of bed.
Do you specifically mean a walk in bath, as in bath tub, or have you
considered a full size walk in shower?
My parents (mid-80's) recently installed a full size walk in shower. It has
a curb of about 3, maybe 4 inches which my mom has no trouble negotiating,
even with her knee issues. They love the full size and it was easy to
install in place of the existing tub. Quality sliding doors completed the
They never took baths so a tub was not required.
