Whirlpool Bathtub: Great for Accessible Bathrooms at Home
Whirlpool Bathtub: Great for Accessible Bathrooms at Home
A whirlpool bathtub can be an important water therapy product for everyone in the home, especially for those who are disabled. 

A whirlpool bathtub is a widely used water therapy product that is used in both institutional medicine and in ongoing home therapy methods for those who 
are disabled, injured or ill.  

A whirpool or hydrotherapy tub is often used to manage pain, 
provide relaxation and healing, and for other medicinal purposes. 

Water therapy is so popular these days that many people choose
to install a whirlpool tub in their own home bathroom. Many 
disabled bathrooms that are designed with water therapy in mind,
can offer benefits not only to those who are physically 
challenged, but for everyone else in the home. This type of
equipment fits in nicely with the universal design concept of 
equitable use that is beneficial to all. 

In fact, water therapy equipment like whirlpool bathtubs, Jacuzzis,
or water spas, are often provided in high end vacation resorts and 
luxury homes simply for their relaxation benefits. But the
health benefits of using a whirpool bathtub at home are well worth 
considering when in the process of bathroom remodeling or 
a new bathroom for the disabled.

Modern medicine as well as alternative therapies rely on water therapy methods to provide special benefits to the disabled.

Whirlpool bathtubs are some of the most popular water therapy equipment that uses warm water for treatment protocols. However, there are many other types of water therapy equipment such as spinal, head and foot baths, sitz baths, steam baths, saunas or hot air baths, and a plethora of other hydrotherapy options that niclude both warm and cold water treatments. 

But the total immersion or full body immersion tub with whirling warm water that is moved about by electric pumps, is the most common and often used in medical clinics as well as in the home. 

A whirlpool bathtub is a definite plus for any home, since every member of the household can use it to a great advantage for better health and well being. It is especially useful to those who are disabled or ill and can bring much needed physical relief and healing if provided in a home accessible bathroom.
