As standard, the ShowerBuddy and TubBuddy models have an ergonomic bend at the top of the backrest for the convenience of the carer/attendant. In cases where shower enclosures are smaller, meaning the handle can get in the way when rotating the chair. In these situations the Straight Backrest-Push Handle accessory is recommended. This piece swaps out the top bend backrest frame with a straight piece without bend, allowing more space within the shower.
The SBH accessory reduces length by 70mm and can be ordered for compatible Showerbuddy models. It is recommend that measuring the space and assessing requirements with an OT and/or carer before ordering.
