Do You Know a Shower/Commode Chair the ROCKS? This one does...

Universal/accessible design of the home from an occupational therapy and a construction perspective. This blog is part of a quest for cool, convenient, functional design that makes life safer, easier, and as maintenance-free as possible. It's about the lifestyle.

Well it doesn't rock literally but it rolls and its one of my favorite shower/commode chairs on the market.



Mariner Shower/Commode Chair

This is my favorite basic rolling shower chair.  Remember you only need a rolling shower chair if you have a roll-in shower, seems obvious hunh?

 What I love about the Mariner Shower/Commode Chair:

  • Weight capacity 300 pounds.
  • Soft cushioned seat.
  • Cut-out you can sit on or take out to use as a commode chair.
  • Removable basket and bucket for commode.
  • Mount the seat so the cut-out faces to the front, left, or right.  To allow for easy access to lower body.
  • Folds-up for easy storage.
  • Swing-away footrests.
  • Brakes for self-propelled shower/commode chair, locking casters for attendant propelled shower/commode chair.
  • Flip-up armrests.
  • Mariner Attendant Propelled Shower/Commode Chair
  • For the self-propelled model the tire extends 3/4" above the seat.

Thanks James. You have some cool shower chairs too. I'm actually interested in a portable traveling shower chair. Any suggestions?
