Tub or shower glider  bath transfer systems provide accessibility to the bathtub or shower without the need for remodeling.  BILD provides a number of options for tub and bath transfer gliders, as well as roll in shower wheelchairs for accessible bathing.  Bath shower chairs and tub/shower gliders provide accessible options including: padded seats, roho cushion seats, side drop rails for hygiene access, lateral supports, tilt-in-space, and headrest supports.

Tub and shower gliders are specialized shower transfer systems allow the individual to transfer onto a narrow rolling chair.  The rolling chair will is able to be used with a commode insert, or to roll over the toilet, and then will interlock with a gliding frame which is set into the bathtub or shower.  The seat portion of the rolling chair glides into the bathtub or shower acting as a gliding bath transfer bench.  The frame of the wheelchair can then be removed to allow the patient to be bathed over the tub or shower with a hand-held shower spray.

Tub and shower glider transfers systems work very well for accessible bathing in rentals and apartments, with individuals who require more dependent transfers, and when remodeling is not desired.
