Walk in bathtubs are just what they sound like. Walk in baths are tubs with a door with a door which swings open wither inwardly or outwardly, allowing the bather to get in without having to precariously step over the lip of a traditional bathtub. Inside of walk in baths are a built in seat so the bather can comfortable sit down, and walk in bath tubs are also lined with skid proof material on the floor. Walk in bath tubs have paved the way for a better quality of life for alternatively abled people. Those who previously could not bathe alone because of physical issues such as balance and strength now can once again bathe privately and with dignity. And just at importantly, walk in bath tubs allow them to do so safely. Walk in bat tubs have existed in hospitals for some time and in recent years, walk in bath tubs are becoming increasingly more common in private residences, both for use by elderly and disabled, and also as a luxury item for people who like the idea of comfortable stepping to a bath tub and sitting in a built in seat.
