    Surfer Bather – Mangar At Home

    We have a son of eight years old who is over 30 kg and severely disabled. There are few things he enjoys more than to soak in the tub, and your product (I saw it first at the “Reha Messe” in Duesseldorf in 2003) enables him to do just that (while I don’t have backache lifting him in and out a deep bath). The “Surfer Bather” bathlift can go lower in the bath than other children’s bath aids we have used – previously we had to use the shower head to bathe him, which he didn’t enjoy much.Thank you Sir/Madam for this innovative product – the proof of your success is to see Dan so relaxed that he now regularly falls asleep in the bath!”

    Surfer Bather

    If you’re a parent to a child with limited mobility we believe that bath time should be no different than for any other parent or child. With that in mind we created a bathing aid – the Surfer Bather – that will help and support you at this special time of day using the principles of single handed care

    The Surfer Bather is designed to help minimise the moving and handling risks for parents and carers, using a powered elevating bath lift that can lower and raise your child in and out of the bath safely. It gives children the support they need to relax, play and strengthen their bond with their parents during bath time.

    Benefits of the Surfer Bather

    The Surfer Bather is a bathing aid designed to hold a child securely as they are lifted in and out of the bath, making bath time safe for both the child and carer as it reduces the risk of back injury when lifting. With a safe environment, the emphasis can really be made on making bathing a fun and enjoyable part of the day.

    Who can use it?

    It's ideal for parents and carers who struggle to lift their child in and out of the bath.

    The bathing aid can be removed when it’s not in use, making it the perfect solution for a family setting with a shared family bathroom.

    Special Features

    • It is simple to fit and remove as it uses suction cups to stick firmly to the bath
    • Both the hand control and bathing unit are fully waterproof making it easy to clean
    • It is a stable, lightweight support for a child during bath time
    • The Surfer Bather is lowered and raised all at the touch of a button
    • It has an adjustable backrest and seat, with the option to include a pommel
    • It uses side rails and a leg strap to ensure children are held securely
    • The Surfer Bather is battery operated so there are no dangerous cables
