To ensure you will find the perfect transfer benche, you should consider the following factors:
Sliding Doors: Does your bathroom has sliding doors? If so, then you need to replace it with a shower curtain for easy transfer.
Skin Type: Elderly with delicate skin would seat more comfortable on a waterproof seat, but that could also be more slippery when wet. You may remain to choose transfer chairs with waterproof seat but place a towel on it to decrease its slipperiness. Otherwise, you may choose a non-padded plastic seat with drainage holes to avoid puddles of water on the seat.
Degree of mobility of the senior: Can your elderly at least partially stand? If not, then you may need a transfer seat ergonomically designed for you to clean his/her private areas without needing to stand-up.
Weight: How heavy/light is the person? Check to see if the transfer chair has the capacity to hold the weight of the individual. For persons with overweight, Heavy Duty Bariatric transfer benches are available.
Assembly requirement: How complicated is it to assemble the transfer seat? How many screws that is have? To save you from complex assembling of parts, inquire if there are fully assembled transfer benches that can be delivered to your home.
