The bathroom is dangerous for people with mobility difficulty.
Especially out of the bathtub.
So we designed this balloon, to help people get into and out of the bathtub.
First, the hot water into the balloon.
The second step, sit balloons
The third step, unscrew the valve on the balloon, so that the hot water outflow gradually reduced over balloon, slowly declining, enjoy a bath.
When you want to leave the bathtub, add water to drain and tighten the balloon valve, open the air compressor switch to allow air to enter.
With the balloon muster, you also pushed higher.
Then you can put down the legs and out of the tub.
