The Bathing Cushion is an air compressor powered inflatable cushion that will lower and raise you out of the bath. It can take a maximum weight of 150 kg (330 lb) and it can lift to a maximum height of 40 cm. The compressor is rechargeable so you don’t need to have power leads lying around and there’s a safety feature that prevents it from lowering you into the bath if it doesn’t have enough charge to get you out. Convenience like this isn’t cheap though, £399.95 and a complete lack of respect from your World of Warcraft clan …. I’m just sayin’.
At the touch of a button on the remote control it lowers you slowly to the floor of the bath (you choose whether to leave in some air to inflate the backrest) then steadily elevates you back to a sitting position when you want to get out.
