Sliding Bath Chair / Bath Chair (Product)

Sliding Bath Chair
Sliding Bath Chair

Taking a bath can be quite challenging and even dangerous for the elderly and the physically challenged. The Sliding Bath Chair can automatically slide back and forward and make bathing easier. Preexisting bath chairs can only move vertically, however by analyzing users action, I have found that users frequently move forward and backward to acquire bathing equipment and shower head, which can be difficult for some. Another inconvenience is that after using a shower head, user must move forward to hang it back on the front or place it on a bathroom floor. The Sliding bath chair has a handle combined with hold for a shower head as a solution.
