Getting in and out of the tub can be more than half of the battle at bath time for people with some physical disabilities. The Elevated Bathtub is an innovative solution to a common problem for young and old that makes preparing for freshening up a great deal easier.

A Design Concept winner of the 2012 Red Dot Awards, the accessible soaker provides an effortless transition in and out. The bather simply moves beneath the bottomless enclosure, raised roughly six feet above the floor, and presses a button for it to be lowered and sealed against its base. Zou Tao and Zhang Jiangpeng’s Elevated Bathtub invention incorporates convenient filling system, as well as a shower head for those who prefer that kind of rinse.
