The New 'bathSTAR' - An Easy, Safe And Secure Way To Bathe Special Needs Children
Bath time for children is important in several areas: hygiene, bonding and an opportunity to play but most of all the child should feel safe and relaxed. Child safety is important for all children during bath time. The new bathSTAR Bath Lifter
Sometimes a baby bath seat offers less child safety than desired allowing the child to slip and slide in the tub while you are trying to hold and wash your child.
The bathSTAR bath lifter design allows a safe and effortless lowering into and lifting up out of the tub water all the while holding your child safely and securely in a comfortable and soft polyester fabric sling with padded harness, head and leg rests.
From toddlers to children up to 30kg (65lb) with poor sitting balance or needing some trunk support while being bathed the bathSTAR is ideal.
The bathSTAR removes the need of the parent or caregiver to hold on to the child with one hand and wash him with the other, because the child is safely secured into the comfortable polyester mesh sling of the bathSTAR. Both hands are free to enjoy bath time, to wash, to play without fear of the child slipping under the water.
One of the great features of the bathSTAR is its lightweight portability. It can be hung behind the bathroom door when not in use.
The bathSTAR fits most standard size bath tubs but prior to purchase and use it is important to ensure that the internal width of the tub is between 520mm & 620mm/20.4inches & 24.4inches.
FEATURES OF THE bathSTAR
Fire retardant polyester mesh hammock
Waist and crotch harness
Corrosion and mold resistant
Folds flat for easy storage
Padded neck rest
Padded leg rest
