What to Look for in a Hydrotherapy Whirlpool Bath Tub

Monday, April 21, 2008

If you have to choose the hydrotherapy whirlpool bath tubs to use in your medical setting, it will help to know what features work best in reality and which will help you get the most for the money you spend:
  • Stainless steel materials – This metal tends to last the longest, which is helpful when you want to make an investment in your hydrotherapy whirlpool bath tubs that lasts for a number years and a number of patients.
  • Casters – If you can move the tub from one place to the next more easily, you will be able to provide assistance to patients in different rooms as well as in their floor rooms, if needed.
  • Higher or lower edges – Depending on the amount of water you need and the portion of the patient that will immersed, you might want to have higher edges to ensure the comfort and privacy of the patient as well as to keep the water inside the tub.
  • Hydrolifts – If you want to have assistance to get the patient into the whirlpool tub, these lifts will help to move an immobile patient from their bed into the water.
  • Water jets – To help massage the muscles and to improve circulation, the water jets need to have multiple settings to help the therapist or caregiver adjust for the different patients they are helping.
