An advantage of portable shower stools is they can easily be removed from the shower when others in the household wish to take a shower or tub bath. The waterproof construction makes it possible to maintain the device with relatively little effort, while also ensuring that the bench will remain functional for as long as needed.
A shower bench is ideal for people with arthritis, and are not able to stand long enough to take a shower. By providing a slip-proof and sturdy seating option in the shower, the shower bench makes it possible for just about anyone to enjoy the relaxing qualities of a shower without fear of falling or having to hurry bathing before strength is exhausted.
In situations where the need for a shower bench is more permanent, it is possible to incorporate bath chairs and benches into the construction of the shower area.
