It’s hard to appreciate the challenges presented by old age and debilitating injuries unless one has experienced them first-hand. What I can appreciate, though, is when a company comes out with a product to make life a little more manageable for those live with such concerns. Accessibility issues will confront us all at some point, and it’s good to know someone cares. Take the MediTub, for example—with its access-conscious “flex-a-door,” the MediTub is essentially a walk-in bathtub, made especially for individuals with mobility challenges. The specially designed door claims to eliminate some of the imperfections of competing walk-in tub products, such as small doors, in-swinging doors that hit one’s legs, and out-swinging doors that are difficult to close once inside the tub. The MediTub features a convenient seat for comfortable soaking, and optional hydrotherapy jets. A no-scald, temperature control valve keeps the water at a safe temperature. The tub sells for as little as $4350, and is available now.
The MediTub seemed to be the answer - the right size and features for my elderly parents. Unfortunately, the company provides very little support. Nothing like they promised in order to make the sale! The door leaks and it's brand-new out of the box, and they rarelyreturn my phone calls or email inquiries. No brochure on how to operate the thing, no paperwork except a poorly-worded single page for installation. Had it for over a month and still haven't been able to use it yet!
