Mobility aids are made with weight limits. These limits often don’t cover the larger people among us. Weight limits of 17 to 19 stone are common place with standard mobility aids. The term bariatric covers those over 21st or so. This review covers the Sherwood bariatric shower stool by Performance Health.
The Sherwood bariatric shower stool supports a maximum user weight of 255kg or 40stone. It also has an extra wide seat at 24 inches.
The legs are adjustable to ensure it is suitable for smaller and taller users. This bariatric shower stool has a padded seat that is 1″ or 2.5cm thick so it is very comfortable.
The cross brace construction ensures that the stool is extremely strong and should last a long time with frequent use.
Performance Health claim that the Sherwood bariatric shower stool has been developed in partnership with healthcare professionals.
The stool was delivered in a timely fashion in a very, very large box. The build quality is superb, as is to be expected with an item that will support a larger weight limit.
The only thing I could probably pick fault with is the price. It seems that all bariatric products are quite expensive, but when you consider the additional materials and quite frankly, better build quality that has to go into these products, you should understand why.
